Suggestion: Profiles or Startup Groups

I`m planning on buying Startup Organizer but I can think of one feature that would be nice...

My many startup tasks can be broken into categories: printing / faxing, graphic design (e.g. Adobe Gamma Loader), and sound / multimedia. In most cases when I go to startup my computer I don`t need all of them. I would love the option of being able to select from multiple "Controlled StartUp" groups that I can put my custom name on.

So the idea is that, by default, the computer loads without all of the extra processes, but then you could optionally select additional process groups to run at startup. Then later if you decided you needed those printing/faxing processes you could go into SO and right click that group and click "Run All Processes".

Maybe I`m a control freak but I think this could really speed up my machine.

Thank you for the idea! Yes, we plan to add this feature to one of the future versions of Startup Organizer. Right now you can use backup configurations (File - Configurations) to switch profiles fast for the next reboot.
