In that case, you want to modify the timestamp_timeout value in the /etc/sudoers file. Open up the sudoers file with

$ sudo visudo

enter your password, then look in the file for a line that starts with Defaults and has timestamp_timeout in it. Adjust the value so that it's set to 0. If there isn't a line like that present in the file, add a new one:

Defaults tty_tickets, timestamp_timeout=0
0

the default is to ask for your "regular" user password each time. you'd rather type the "root" password each time? why?
