Windows 7: How to get Win7 to boot straight to desktop ?

How to get Win7 to boot straight to desktop ?


I have set up my netbook to hibernate on pressing the power button.

It is my wireless music server & ideally I want it to just boot straight to desktop after turning on (so the SqueezeServer software is running).

However it still boots to the login screen (even though I've removed the password).

How can I avoid this & boot straight to the hibernated desktop ?

This netbook has just been repaired & I'm sure I managed to the previous working incarnation to by pass this login page, but can't remember how !
