Requirement to Sign On whenever restarting the system when Disk Protection is active RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to bypass the signon screen when restarting the system with Disk Protection active.  Here's the problem.  All of the systems in our Learning Center are running World Community Grid so they're doing something usefull 24/7.  At 2AM every morning, we use AmpWinOff to restart the systems so they are "cleaned up" on a daily basis.  Now, with the requirement to "Sign On" when Disk Protection is active, those systems can't start World Community Grid because the system hasn't been "signed on" yet.  Is there a way around this "Sign on" problem?

  • Hi Thomas, are you talking about auto-sign on? You can try the following steps:

    1.       Click Start, type control userpasswords2 in Run or Start Search and press enter.

    2.       Under Users tab, select the desired user that needs to log in automatically and uncheck the box "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer."

    3.       Press OK.
