After iChat is open, I click the menu named 'iChat', inside it says "log into pancake44@me.com" (which is my Apple ID). I've clicked on that item but nothing else prompts me for a password afterwards.

The buddy list still says 'Disconnected'. I am using Leopard (10.5.8). I have changed my password before, but I'm never prompted to actually log in and update it.


I might not be understanding your problem correctly, but in the iChat menu, try selecting Preferences. From there, click on the Accounts tab. If you click on your account, there is a place to enter (and store) your password. Try entering your correct password there.


Also, you mentioned it just says "Disconnected", can you click that and perhaps change your status to something else? That would trigger it to try and connect.
