I was just curious, since it may save me some time (this is more of a convenience), but is it possible to have the computer log you in, in the background, when it first boots up? It usually takes 3-5 mins for the computer to completely finish loading up everything (+ dashboard). Clarifying: automatic login is disabled, for security. So in the rare event that I do restart, I might walk away. But I want my computer to stay at the login window the whole time and my user to start logging in when it first gets to that stage. This is so when I return, I can immediately start using it PLUS have the security of not enabling auto login. I was thinking of having a startup item (script) that will somehow just use the fast user switch back to the login window. Possible? Cheers, Sam.
