    As my system starts up, Tranmission, iTunes (as a result of Synergy), Last.fm, and Mail open. But then I have four screens which I don't use right away, I just want the apps to be activated.

    So instead of hiding them every time I start up my Mac, I was wondering if there's a way to start the apps up in "hidden modus". Anybody ideas?

    Thanks! :)

    Go to System Preferences -> Accounts, then choose your account.

    In the Login Items tab, add the application you want started upon login, and check the check-box to hide.

    Great, thanks! Didn't know it was possible inside OSX. :)

    It doesn't work on Mail by the way, but that's not a huge problem.
