Re: Have to restart local server after reboot in Indigo 4

I think I must have misunderstood what you wanted. The Indigo UI (client) is a separate process from the Indigo server (runs in the background and you don't see it) - when you have it configured like you do now they *appear* to be the same but they really aren't.
If what you want is to have the Indigo UI start up automatically you have to do something else. Most people don't want the client UI running all the time because it's mostly used for configuring things. The server process is the one that handles running all the automation logic.
The advantage of having the separate processes is that you don't have to worry about starting up the client application in order for your triggers and schedules (formerly time/date actions) to work - just have the server start in the background when you log in and only start the client when you need to change things.

When I reboot I have to login to my acct with my password.
For Indigo to operate, you must be logged in to your user account. So, most people just have their Mac set up to automatically log in to their account when the computer reboots so they don't have to manually do it.
