That's a good idea - and I'm going to suggest it. Here's what they'll
whine about at that point:

1) They still have to CAD to start in the morning.
2) Since they'll have to sign off the 5250 sessions due to overnight
backups, then they'll whine that they have to double-click an icon in
the morning.

So bottom-line you're right. Don't get in a pi$$ing match. It's just
the way it is.

Note #1 -- If they are so bothered by having to enter a user and password,
perhaps you could implement fingerprint signon or use a token.

Actually, this brings me to another point: Why do the user want auto logon?

So they can get to work faster? If that's the case, why not tell them
to send the machine to standby with all applications running instead
of shutting it down? This will ensure that they'll be back in their
work within seconds, even if they have to type the passwords.

I know i never turn off my machines at work, or send them to standby
for that matter. I just lock them and turn of the screen.
