    Please read the sticky at the top of the Macbook forum, it clearly states that this is NOT for software questions.

    Moving to appropriate forum.

    As for your answer, right click on the dock icon and choose "Open at Startup".

    And by open at startup, Schweb means 'Open at login'...

    (at least that's what I get when I right-click my dock icons...)
