Shades Feature Request

Auto start

  • Status: Already Implemented


Upon reboot, the menu icon is not present. Shades has to be started through its preferences panel

I would like to have an autostart feature, so that it would be started whenever I reboot

Another useful option would be to restart with no shade by default, to avoid being locked out by a too dark screen without knowing the emergency restore.

If Shades is running when you shut down it will automatically be added to the startup items so that it launches after reboot.


I have had this same issue with Shades 1.2b3. Shades is listed in my login items under Accounts, but it does not automatically start up after reboot. I am using a new iMac with 10.6.4. The same behavior was exhibited using 10.6.3.
