I am using Lotus Notes 8 and currently have the password on my Lotus file the same as my Domain password.  Prior to getting my laptop reimaged I had somehow made Lotus open without a password as long as the password matched what I use to log into my laptop.  Of course I can't remember how I did that now that I want to do it again.  What do I need to do to get that setup again?

The Lotus Notes Password windows service needs to be installed on your PC and I am guessing it is not.

Re-install the Notes Client and click the option "Client Single Logon Feature" as an Option

You can safely install over the top of your current Lotus Notes install without it losing anything as it will simply add this feature

Ok, I did that but it still is asking me for my password to open notes.  I went into security and there is a check next to "Login to Notes using your operating system login".  Do I need to do something else to make it work?  The passwords are the same.

You need to reboot for the service to start -- or start it via your control panel

I unchecked and exited, then rechecked it and rebooted and it worked, thanks.
