    I have the "hide" box checked under my login items, but when I log in, the iTunes window will appear momentarily, then disappear, then reappear 1 second later. And once it reappears, it stays there. I have to manually hide it, which is no big deal, but defeats the purpose of the "hide" checkbox. I've added it/removed it and logged out/restarted several times, but it doesn't work. Anyone else having this same problem? Anyone know of a solution? I'm running iTunes 9.0.1/ OS X 10.5.8

    Thanks.

    This isn't ideal, but you could remove the apps from Login Items, and instead add an Applescript which launches the apps you want, and then hides them.

    Something like:

    Code:
    tell application "iTunes" to activate
    
    tell application "System Events"
    	set visible of process "iTunes" to false
    end tell
    
    Just add another activate and set visible line for any other app you wish to launch & hide. For me, iTunes launches and flickers briefly, but then stays hidden.
