auto start & quit ableton without screen or mouse

Post by elektruck » Tue Nov 11, 2014 10:00 am

I'm making an instrument for schoolkids, with an integrated PC running Ableton Live. It's a standalone machine (its a cabinet, chest of drawers, to make music with) that schools can rent from a educational art institute. The teacher has to power on the machine without a screen or mouse etc, just hit the power knob, and at the end of the day hit the powerknob again so the PC will shut down.
Everytime Live should just loads its template without asking for anything, like crashreports etc.
Is there a way to achive this? I found this threat
but I don't know how to do this exactly.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, I have a truly great machine but now it hangs on such a stupid issue.
Thanks in advance and cheers,
