how to start programs after unlock windows ?

Recommended Posts

StefMientki

hello,

As Outlook doesn't like the hibernate state,

I've made an autoit script that runs as a screensaver and closes Outlook before hibernating.

Now when the computer comes out of hibernate,

I want to start Outlook again, but ...

before this action can be performed,

I fisrt must unlock my PC with the standard login account.

How can I let the autoit script wait for a valid login ?

Or other suggestions are welcome too.

thanks,

Stef Mientki

While the computer is locked, WinGetTitle("") returns an empty string. This usually doesn't happen any other time so you could do something like

While WinGetTitle("")=""

Sleep(1000)
