How do I set it up to make it log me in automatically? Don't tell me to click the option that says start skype when your computer starts, cause that's not the same thing and not what I want. I don't want it to run automatically and log me in when my computer first boots into the desktop. I want it to log me in automatically without me typing my password when I click on the icon and run the program, just like every other chat program! I don't see an option to save the password. I have no issues with AIM or Yahoo, cause they both have a simple little check box that says save password. Add it, Microsoft!!

I still don't understand why they haven't added a simple option to SAVE the password! I have to enter it everytime I use the program. I don't have that issue with AIM or Yahoo. Get with the times, Microsoft!! Also, as someone else mentioned, why does the program lock up and crash sometimes when signing out? That's a small annoyance that needs to be fixed as well. Don't even get me started on offline messaging. lol. Fix your issues, Microsoft!!

Hmm... I don't have to enter the password everytime I launch the program although it's only me who uses it in this machine, haven't tried multiuser.
