    Power goes out, server goes down, power comes back.

    Because of disability, I depend entirely on putty/SSH/W7 speech recognition for managing my Ubuntu box.

    Consequently, even though the server is less than 2 feet away, I can't make the initial login.

    Apparently, the SSH server doesn't come up until after the first login.

    How do I make Ubuntu skip the first login?

    Conceptually, I can have it autologin as a lower level user or a guest just to get my sites back up.

    I just need to know how to go about doing this. Maybe there's another approach?

    Disregard. I figured it out.
