OK, (newbie here)

I've figured out how to get my laptop to automatically boot in the morning. I've also figured out how to get slimserver to start on boot. I've added the advanced alarm plugin and selected a playlist.

This morning everything turned on, but the playlist never played. It appeared in the tracks section, but I had to press play to get it going. I've tried playing the playlist manually and it worked fine, so it's not the playlist.

When I shut down slimserver, do I need to press play before doing so, or is there something else I'm forgetting to do?

....so close!

Thanks in advance.
