So, I'm looking to replicate the functionality of Keychain in every OS X until macOS Sierra. I have two passwords for my MacBook: the first is quite simple and logs me in, and the second is devilishly complex and unlocks my Keychain. On older systems, Keychain prompted for the complex password on boot but stayed logged in until I shut down. Now, Keychain prompts on boot but logs out every three hours (or perhaps when the computer sleeps), requiring that I log in many times in a session. I can see the benefit to this, but at the same time it's useless for me. I turn off my MacBook with regularity, so if stolen it will likely be off (and therefore not logged in) but the new password prompts seem to come at the worst times. Is anyone familiar with a way to revert to the old style (keep the Keychain logged in until I shut down)?
I should clarify: I have seen many questions about repeated Keychain password prompts. This is a different question. I know my password and can enter it, satisfying the prompt. I don't want my Keychain password to be my user password. I want the Keychain session to last until my Mac shuts down.
