If I understand you correctly. You want to hit the power button and walla there's the desktop showing?
You want to bypass the password box and the 60+/- seconds it takes to load everything correct?
Why not leave it on or put in sleep mode while you are away? IMHO

As far as I know the fastest anyone has been able to make their computer reach the desktop from a complete shut off is like 24 seconds or something.

Sleep mode is going to be your best bet.

Or, if saving power isn't a big deal for you, you can always turn off any power saver options and just turn off your monitor, that would be the absolute FASTEST way

East Bay friend................
That was going to be my next suggestion.
But what is the rationale behind doing something like this?

Personal preference mostly, my big valley friend.

Of course anyone can then access your computer, so it's not the recommended

method, but each of us has our own preferences, I don't mind the logon myself.

That's what I thought about it being "it's not the recommended method"
Opens your computer and all valuable stuff to invader's.

i don't like to leave computer plugged in as i have been hit by lightning before and lost everything even though i had a surge protector, i first just wanted to change the welcome screen picture so i downloaded logonstudio vista and changed the picture to some rocks with water running over them but decided i did not like it so i tried to remove the program all together but the picture is still there and i can not find out how to get rid of it.
