Got an easy one for ya! How to set local pwd?

I am stumped. Not too familiar with HP ProCurve switches, but have a dilemna. How do I get rid of the prompt to "Press any key to continue" when first telneting to a ProCurve switch? I have already set the operator and mgr passwords, yet I am still recieving the Press Any Key before being prompted to logon. From what I can see, there is a way to not have to press any key and go straight to a logon prompt. Thanks.

I should clarify one thing... I am basically looking to have two passwords without having to press any key to continue to get to the initial login.

is there some kind of "banner" configured on this switch.
To display a warning message for unauthorized use before login?
This could be the "press any..." message or even an "empty" message with only spaces.

I removed banners already so it's not that. I submitted a call in with HP and they said that message about HP stuff and the Press Any Key cannot be removed. Odd since I saw one of their manuals with it removed. But I guess that manual was wrong.
