    I was doing some work with another program, I had WHM open and just sitting there in my browser for one of our servers, then out-of-the-blue the password/login box suddenly pops open. I just clicked it away (entering our usual password) and everything was fine. The root password had not changed, but why do you supposed this occurred? Could cPanel have been updating itself, or something like that?

    It is possible that your session just expired.

    Hmmm, okay thanks. I've been using cPanel since 2002 and I don't remember this happening before.
