One more thing, as I mentioned above, I use the autologon function, does BootSnooze check whether this setting was previously enabled before it removes it's autologon entry? I wouldn't like to re-enable autologon every time I BootSnooze.
My understanding is that, if you don't check "enable auto-login", BootSnooze does not interfere with the existing settings.

skwire, I tested it but auto-login did not work  huh . I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bits, maybe that's the cause (other registry keys?).
And when enabling auto-login in Boot Snooze, the username is not set to the current user by default.

I'm still wondering what all the fuss is about; boot snooze can not work for me;
Again, Boot Snooze was not written especially for you!

Mouser, thank you for the program; nonetheless it is absolutely useless (for me) as is.
Useless ... for you. For a lot of people, Boot Snooze is interesting because, when you wake up the computer from sleep or hibernation, you are immediately at your desktop.

Your requirement is different and would probably need a service to start at boot and that will manage the sleep/hybernation.

It's actually super easy to remove the password, or at least it used to be under XP and possibly Vista. There was a boot disc to do it though, so maybe it's not so easy from within Windows. Not sure about restoring it though...
Possible with a boot disk for floppy, running a light Linux and tools that hacks the registry while it's not being used by a running Windows.

mouser, I'm pretty sure it cannot be done. The password is most certainly stored very well and not reachable by any tool to change. That would be a serious security hole: you ghet infected by a virus, it changes your password and you're locked out of your own account. Even if you could remove the password, I'm not sure it could be put back after the boot as simply as that.

Setting up Autologon is, I think, the only solution but I'll be more than happy to be proven wrong  smiley .

So how do we proceed?

a) you code the feature yourself, shouldn't take you very long, I guess.
b) you send me the code, I (try to) code the feature, and share the exe back here
c) any other way you see fit...

Thanks smiley .

I'm ready to add this feature myself, but I'd have preferred not to reinvent the wheel and use the existing source code as a base embarassed .

havent read this myself so not sure how relevant it is, but just in case:-
Great step-by-step tutorial on setting up a pc to auto fill in password for use with BootSnooze at Windows Guides:
Nice but it requires the setting "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer " to be switched off all the time.
I only want it to be disabled when I do a restart with Boot Snooze. After it ran, or when I do a regular reboot, I want the computer to ask for a password. I also set my PC to ask for a password when coming out of sleep or hibernate.

Hi

Great idea and great implementation.

Do you plan to release the source code? I understood it is written with AutoHotkey, right?

I have a password defined for my user and I have to, it's required by a remote control tool I use. I'm willing to add support for auto-login at boot myself if you do not want to do it.

Thanks!
