run as a service

  • can f.lux be run as a windows service so it starts automatically prior to login?
    the most annoying part of my early morning is having to login to a bright monitor waiting for f.lux to startup after login. this code should be a windows service

  • I don't think it can. Would you be open to eliminating the need to log in?

  • The windows login screen is a "secure" and separate desktop. So while it is possible to get to it, it's very very hard in the newer OSes.

    Another reason to run as a service is for features like the Philips Hue support - when your PC reboots, we don't get relaunched.
