run the prog as admin at startup (Win7)

Apr 23, 2010 at 7:57 AM

hello people,

I'm using this program for a while now and I like it very much. But now I've got a (small?) problem. I've bought a new PC with Windows 7 (64bit) and an external Samsung Story Station 1.5 Tb. And of course I want to use NoSleepHD to keep my external disk awake. When I run the program the 'normal' way it hangs the minute I start it. When I run it as an administrator it works perfect. But here's the problem: when I boot my PC it wants to run NoSleepHD (cause I told it so) and then it also hangs... (because at boot time it's not being ran as an administrator??). Maybe there's a simple solution to this problem. Does anyone have an idea? I'm just a Windows-7-beginner... Thanx!
