Re: hide python window, con'td

Something that runs all day in the background is a perfect candidate
for being turned into a Service. That and servicemanager has a good
way of managing the task so that it doesn't take up lots of excess
CPU cycles that a "normal" application would take while sleeping
or unnecessarily looping. Pick up a copy of Mark Hammond's Python
Programming on Win32 book for example services in Python. You could
then start/stop the service with service manager or with net start/
net stop commands.

Just log off, or is there a better way?
