I use KeePass to automatically log into most website where I use randomly generated passwords. The software uses a series of simulated keepresses to enter my username and password and check/uncheck any log-in options.

For security purposes when logging into Seti@Home I would like to uncheck the "Stay Logged In" option. Normally You would press tab after entering your password and then press the space bar to uncheck the option. Unfortunately the tab order is out of sorts on the web page. Pressing tab after the password takes the selection immediately down to the "log in" button and then through the top menus before coming to rest on the "stay logged in option".

Perhaps this should be changed to the more logical order of moving to the next option down as one is most likely to use them.

Thank you for the consideration.

Dave

keepass allows you to create custom login sequences.
