Wouldn't it be easier to simply set the option to ask for a password when the PC comes out of standby (or hibernation)?
It's an inbuilt Windows function in the screensaver tab:
BootSnooze can't do its work, which is waiting for your startup apps to start and THEN hibernating/standby-ing, until you're logged in. Therefore, it needs auto-login enabled. It's up to you whether you enable it temporarily via BootSnooze or simply turn it on for your computer permanently.
This way BootSnooze would stay completely out of the realm of passwords and therefore make a lot more people comfortable with using it. (I don't like the thought of entering my logon details into a third-party program)
Understood. This is why I was very hesitant to add it in there in the first place.
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.
Yes, it does. It will only disable auto-login if you enabled it within BootSnooze. If you have auto-login enabled on your computer prior to starting BootSnooze, it won't even give you the option of using the auto-login feature. Is that good enough (honest question...not trying to be a smartass)? Thanks for the feedback.
