Disable fast user switching with HP 950 all-in-one
Authored by: colbadhombre on Feb 03, '04 11:48:20AM

I have the same problem with an All-in-one 750xi. Killing and restarting the HP Communications program seems to work sometimes, other times a complete restart seems necessary.

However, I'm not just piling on. What I'd really like to know is if there is someway to write a script on startup that would detect the existance of a HP Communications process and launch it only if it wasn't there. Then you could run the script on startup instead of HP Comm. My scripting skills are non-existant, so I have no idea where to start doing such a thing.


TIA

Looking at the aioscript mentioned below, I'm going to guess what the script I want might look like:

set pid to do shell script "ps -ax | grep -v grep | grep 'HP Comm' |awk '{ print $1 }'"
if (pid = "") then
open application "HP Communications"
end if

Scripters feel free to critique.
