    I have the app called "SimpleTask" set to start-up when i turn my Mac on. The icon is just in the top taskbar. The problem is that when i turn my Mac on the window of the app comes up on my desktop and then i have to manually minimize it every time. Is there a way to have it start-up minimized in the taskbar from the start so i dont have to do it manually? There is no option for this in the preferences. There has to be a way to do it thou.

    What about the HIDE checkbox in System Preferences > Accounts > YOU > Login Items?

    Btw, what you call "taskbar" is called the "Menu Bar" in Mac OS X.

    It is no longer working. I very rarely restart my Mac so i just noticed it. After i checked the hide box and restarted my Mac it started hidden the first time, but this only happens 1 time and then it automatically unchecks itself. So every other restart i have to go back in and check hide again. Any idea why it only works for 1 time after i check it, then does not work any more?
