Submission + - Automator and Bootcamp

segafreak writes: "I use Boot camp on my macbook pro and frequently boot between different systems. However as reboot takes a few seconds, I often use this opportunity to get up for coffee or somehow use the time better than sitting and staring at a boot screen. In order to achieve this, I use the startup disk pane of the System Preferences to choose Windows boot (rather than having to hold the option key). However I must have done this a thousand times now — it makes sense to automate it into a script or automator workflow — one which would open the system preferences, choose startup disk, choose the windows volume, and then reboot. However, the System Preferences pane is not scriptable, so I cannot use AppleScript for this. Is there some way to automate this action?"

How many NASA managers does it take to screw in a lightbulb? "That's a known problem... don't worry about it."
