Remember disable state at login

  • Status: Open



Shades is always running on my computer, but nearly all the time disabled : I only use it at morning, when I wake up early and work in the night, not to wake up my girlfriend and destroy my eyes... The problem I have is that when I log out/log in or restart, Shades doesn't remember it was disabled, and at each login I find myself surprised by how my screen brightness is low even after I've pressed the brightness control a couple of time... until I remember that Shades is no more disabled.

Shortlyà: please, make Shades remember disable state over restart.

And thank you for this software.

I have this same problem (still running 10.4.11), except it's a little worse. for me it doesn't just forget it's state, it ALWAYS spawns a background process and a menu control on reboot. if I leave shades enabled before I reboot, I get two sunglasses menus and I have to go into the control panel and stop everything before it'll work right.

Yes, autostarting enabled means that every morning i have to disbale shades manually.
Please add a toggle option to autostart Shades enabled or disabled. that would be great.
