View Full Version : Log-in twice for auto-launch

Aug 29, 2013, 06:49 AM
I have my Mac set up to automatically start the programs I need on a daily basis for work when I log in in the mornings. However, lately I've noticed that in order to get the auto-start things to actually launch automatically, I have to log in, log out, then log in again to trigger things to launch properly.

Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this, or how I would go about gathering information to troubleshoot it further?

At the end of the day, do you log out or shut down your system? If you shut it down, make sure "Reopen windows when logging back in" is not checked or you will get whatever windows you had open at shutdown. And the same applies if you logout at night.
