Caffeine as a Windows Service Empty Caffeine as a Windows Service

Thu Feb 28, 2019 10:21 pm
Is it possible for Caffeine to run as a service so that:  1.) it starts up automatically when the computer is booted up, and 2.) it runs even when no user is logged on to windows?  
Thanks

To create a Windows Service from an executable, you can use
sc.exe

Code:
sc.exe create <new_service_name> binPath= "<path_to_the_service_executable>"

I don't think that will, or can work.  Caffeine keeps alive a desktop session, whereas a system service doesn't have a desktop session.  As part of the system it doesn't interact with the desktop at all - of any user.
