OneNote Sync with SkyDrive Error 0x80070005

Ok, I am trying to sync my OneNote notebooks to SkyDrive. I have (currently) several notebooks "shared" to skydrive. Two of them are for my iPhone, on one Window's Live ID (because you can't specify what notebooks to sync with my phone...AND I STILL CAN'T GET THAT TO WORK, but that's for a different thread). I also have 3 other notebooks syncing with another Window's Live ID. 


I have been getting the Error message: "A Password is required to synchronize this notebook. (Error code: 0x80070005) click here to see help online about this error." If I sync again, it says that I have sync'd successfully. This is happening quite frequently. Is there a way to change my password settings (so that they are remembered)?


Also, when I go to File->share-> it says that "This notebooke is shared with anyone permmitted to access this domain:" with no password/login options. Yet if i click on an unshared notebook, it gives me options to log in to windows skydrive. 


When I get the error, and I click on the notebook, i get a bar at the top (under the section heading) that says "onenote needs a password to sync some of your notebooks. Click here to see the list of sections and notebooks that require passwords." 

When I click it a box pops up with the path for the notebook, if I click it, nothing happens, and the error message goes away.


So confused.

You don't need to run OneNote as an administrator - but when you have multiple LiveID accounts and you're logging into different ones, it can get a little messy. (with OneNote and SkyDrive.)

I've heard there may be some fixes coming to improve that situation in the next SP for Office 2010, but I don't have any announcd ETA of when to expect that.
