I've been trying to do this for a while and thought I'd ask the boffins here 😉
I believe that to start the Plex service before logging in is technically possible – but over the past year or so, every tutorial I follow to start services just don't work for me.
Does anyone know of a way? Or perhaps another program or freeware util that will do this?
Another idea I had if this isn't possible:
Plex will auto launch, if there is no system password and boots straight up to the desktop.
So – is there a way that I can:
Set a windows password, that ISNT used on first boot (boot straight to desktop) – but when something like the screensaver kicks in, then the password is used to get back into the system?
That way I could set up a screensaver for 2 or 3 minutes after it boots to the desktop, screensaver kicks in and password is required to regain access it.
I know it leaves a small window of vulnerability – but I really just want it to auto boot at 6am – and be up and running, then if the kids come and play around, they cant do any damage!
