Use Logon utility to schedule Desktop unlocks on Windows NT/2000/XP systems
In certain situations scheduled processes require that a computer is run in unlocked mode. For example, if you attempt to run an interractive program and send keystrokes to that program using SendKeys or 24x7 MacroRecorder the simulated keyboard input will fail if the computer is locked. The Logon utility can help in such cases. Schedule it to run before the interractive process to unlock the graphical Windows Desktop and then run the interractive process and send the requied keystrokes.
The Logon utility can be also used to automate unlocking of Windows Desktop after computer is restarted. In this case create a program type job in 24x7 Scheduler and schedule it to start [on startup]. The 24x7 Scheduler must run as a Windows service using LocalSystem or domain admin account and the service must be set to start automatically.
