as far as I know you need the vmware server instead of the workstation for that.

VMW Workstation (like player) is for programmer / active usage.

With the free vmware server 2.0 you can run your virtual machines after system start without starting workstation / player.

hi,
I do in the following way:

a) create a cmd file , eg  "C:\srvtec04 start.cmd"

b) write inside it  (adjusting for your purpose and path) :
REM =====================================================================
cd "E:\VirtualMachines\W2K3 x ST"
"C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmrun.exe" start winnetstandard.vmx 1>1.txt 2>2.txt
REM =====================================================================

c) create a Scheduled Task, launching such cmd
d) check execute as Administrator, and enter password
e) test it, launching from  scheduled task
f) if you need, schedule it at system boot .
