Currently Quickstarter is either loaded at startup or not loaded at all.

I would like to make the suggestion to provide an additional option.

"Load Quickstarter on First opening".

As a computer consultant I have noticed on slower computers the Quickstarter 
takes considerable time starting in the background when the computer first 

In one instance the user thought the computer was up and running, went to open 
their usual applications.  No response (due to Quickstarter 
loading in the background) so tried again.  The result was conflict which 
resulted in a non working session and the computer had to be started again.

The second reason is I am often called in as computers are taking forever to 
start.  Often these people feel they need a new computer.  In most cases 
removing all the automatic startups of programs fixes the perceived slow speed 
of the computer.

The third reason is there are many times when I start up the computer just to 
check the Internet and Email.  I then don't need to have Quickstarter slowing 
start up.

The current option of having Quickstarter load at startup is fine.  I would 
also like to option of having Quickstarter load when the first 
application is opened.

Perhaps others may find this option useful too.

Please use this suggestion as you see fit.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".

Found this issue for the same wish.

Suggestion for the UI:

[X] Enable systray Quickstarter
	[X] Load on login/system start
