    I'd like CoreDuoTemp to automatically start each time I boot my Macbook and I don't want to have to type in my admin. password each time. I'm coming from Windows so I have no idea how to accomplish this on OSX.

    Thank you! I would have never thought to look there.

    Sigh..looks like that won't work for CoreDuoTemp afterall...it requires SpeedIt to be running at bootup and throws an error that it's not running. And unfortunately SpeedIt is built into CDT. Annoying. Ah well...

    Oooo, 1st post...

    Anyway, I have CoreDuo Temp set to run at startup. I forgot how I did it, but the instructions here sound about right. Most of the time, it starts up. Every now and then though, it'll pop up that SpeedIt not installed box.
