Auto Load Parallels Desktop on logon

I'm new to OS X.

Both myself and my wife share a computer. She has to have Windows installed along with a set of applications she uses for work. As we've always had a Windows PC in the house, that's not been an issue so far. However, I've just ordered an iMac which will replace our desktop PC. I've ordered it along with Parallels 8 so that my wife can use Windows 7 when needed (and I can use it in anger when I have to do work stuff at home).

My question is, is it possible to automate the loading of a desktop in Parallels on logon to OS X, so that I can setup a separate logon to the Mac for my wife and when she logs in, she gets Windows 7. Would be really nice for it to log out of OS X when she logs out of Windows too...but that may be a stretch too far. I just want it to be easy for her so it wins her over (otherwise she will want a Windows Desktop PC setting up in our already crowded house)

Thanks in advance

Dont worry...found a knowledge article on their site:

Just the log off bit now but doubt that's possible.
