Can Simon run on server and survive reboots and logouts?

Is it possible to run Simon on my Apple Server such that it would start automatically on system reboot and stay up no matter who was or wasn't logged in? If so, how?

thanks,

Mike

No, Simon requires a logged in user account. Several of the services only work under a user account — what you can do as a "daemon" is somewhat more limited, so I don't expect that requirement will ever change, though you never know.

Using Login Items is the way to ensure it is automatically launched after logging in.
