Where is the pgpass.conf file??? Do I have to create it? 

"In addition, it will remember it until you close pgAdmin."

Why only until I close the application? Still don't understand the purpose 
of the feature then.

Don't worry about it.  I will just continue to input my password everytime 
I connect.

Thank you for the reply.

P.S.: It sounds like you need a vacation or anger management  or maybe

No, it's supposed to save it if you press OK! In addition, it will 
remember it until you close pgAdmin. The next time, it relies on 
pgpass.conf to contain the correct password, and has no more knowledge 
of the pwd.
