Temporarily Disable LoginItems System
Want to login quickly?

Make sure you have at least 10.1.3. Immediately after logging in hold down the shift key, and your login items will not launch at all during this login session. I am glad that Apple finally added an option for this, as it is particularly useful when diagnosing a problem (when frequent logins/outs are necessary).

This is directly from Apple: Mac OS X: v10.1.1 - v10.1.3

Look at the "LoginWindow" section for 10.1.3:

"As of Mac OS X 10.1.3, if the shift key is held down during the login sequence, LoginItems (applications launched at login) will not be launched (r. 2826839)."

Good hint. I've been spending a fair amount of time reading the newly posted tn2043. Like tn2029 (10.1) it has a wealth of user info as well as providing the information developer's need.

Now if Apple would only consider including some docs with an update/upgrade so we wouldn't have to wait weeks (or months) to use new features.......
