Specs: Windows Vista
I currently have two accounts on my Windows Vista box - one for myself, and one for my wife. I have set the computer up to automatically log into her account. My question: is there any way to enable a timed automatic login, similar to what Ubuntu Linux has? For example, Ubuntu provides an option to automatically log an account in after X seconds, but at any time before then you can log in with whatever account you want.

This would be great for us, since most of the time she uses the computer, but I'd like to be able to log into my own profile upon startup without having to log in as her and then switch user.

Any ideas?

I think you can press the shift key when it is booting to select a different user. I think that is the way it used to work in NT and may still work in W7.
Hibernate or standby may not work that way. Only a cold boot.
