After using "sudo <command>" you are asked for the password. You can 
then type sudo again a number of times without being asked for the password.

Does anyone know what that time period is when the password is not asked 
for? And where it could be adjusted, if need be, please?


Attorney:   All your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to?
Witness:    Oral.
