This definitely fixed my ability of being able to log in but now I have another problem. When iMessage is open I get prompted every few minutes to re-enter my password. It's quite annoying. Any suggestions?

Hi, Installing the latest Chimera got me past the sign in issue. However, from the drop down menu, all my statuses are greyed out. Is this normal? Anyone with a real mac able to change their imessage away/busy status?

Also, I was getting the message after the fix that I couldn't use this apple id, and to try another one. I was able to sign in another apple id no problem. Even though I just changed my password a month ago, I thought I would give it a shot, and voila..... signed right in!!!!! So try to change your password and sign in guys again, even though its a hassle
