Not 100% sure if this will work or not but you could give it a try

Create a Registry Key
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"AutoAdminLogon"="1"
"DefaultDomainName"="YourDomainName"
"DefaultUserName"="YourUserName"
"DefaultPassword"="YourPassword"

Now apply this registry file during Sysprep, in theory it should automatically logon using the Account Information Specified.

Now if you only want it to logon only once or twice than also specify the following key
"AutoLogonCount"="X" ; Where X = the number of times you wish to logon automatically, it will decrement after each successful logon.

Hope that helps.

Cheers
