Auto login XP after wake up

Recommended Posts

gertsolo

Hey,

I have a PC which goes into standby when there is no activity. By doing so, the user is logged off. I want to login automaticly after wake up. I have tried every Windows setting without result.

Can I run an AutoIt scripts which detects the wake up (on LAN) and does the windows login?

thx.

you could do an auto-log-in thingy, yes, but i would opt for a more simple, retarded idea, of simulating activity.

while 1=1

mousemove(x1,y1)

sleep(1000)

mousemove(x2,y2)

sleep(1000)

wend

unless you actually WANT to go into sleep mode or whatever.

have you tried doing something like this:

It's quite an old project, but makes it a lot easier than jumping into the registry.

How should I run this to do the login after wake up?

All it does is edit the registry settings for you, it did work on my xp after going into sleep mode, or even after logging out as you can see from one of the functions.

So I should run your first example once and then the registry is edited and everything good to go?

Have you checked the Controlpanel/Power options/Advanced?

There is a checkbox to prompt for password when computer resumes from standby.

I already tried that a long time ago Jos, no luck. I always get the XP login screen.

Do you have a Password setup on a ScreenSaver as well or is this a PC that has AD policies loaded?

Nope, no password. It is just a PC with XP prof that I use remotely.

I have found a script that can detect when the PC wakes up. Now I just have to add the login thingy.

Can anyone help me with that part?

Have you looked in MMC to see if it is set there to lock?

I'm not really familiar with MMC. When I start it which snap-in do I have to add?

So it is not possible to do an auto login after a wake up?
