I just got a new PC (yay!) a couple of days ago.  The BIOS in this one
allows you to tell it to power up every day at a specific time.  With
the ability of TWEAKUI to automatically sign me on at power up, this is
really cool.  I can tell it to power up 5 minutes before I arrive at
work and it's ready to roll.  Since my office is locked there isn't
really a security concern.

Actually, it's ready to roll except for 1 thing.  The drive mapping to
the root on the iSeries.  Even though I have the iSeries in LMHOSTS as
#PRE, that network connection is not 'ready' until 10-15 seconds after
the Windows signon appears.  This was true on my old PC also.  I had to
wait 10-15 seconds before pressing ENTER on the signon screen for the
mapping to work right off the bat.

Does anybody know a way to delay the signon screen for X seconds so the
whole thing would be automatic?
