    Is there some way to start up the stickies program when I start up the machine? I've found it useful as a reminder, but only if I remember to start it up :rolleyes:

    I might also have some other things start up, like my mail program and/or CoreDuoTemp.

    Thanks,

    David

    Awesome, thanks! New to this whole Mac OS thing...

    So now, is there a way to make the stickies actually show up, rather than just having the program open?

    Mine doesn't show the stickies... I don't know why. The sticky program opens, but the stickies don't show up until I click on the program.

    Any thoughts on what I can do?

    Right now, I'm having two programs open on start-up: stickies and entourage.

    On the list of startup items, make sure 'stickies' is NOT checked.

    Thanks, that did it! I just assumed that you clicked the ones you wanted to load on start up...

    The ones you tick state whether they should be hidden or not.
