Will AT&T implement that "mode" ( like mentioned here
the "1" or some other switch to activate it) because I
do want to use it for support but when nobody is there
I still need to work on some things on the machines.

Anyone knows if this will happen?

A little off topic - someone told me that creating a
differnt registry key for Administrator(s) would allow
to take over the machine without displaying a pop up
box asking for auth.  I haven't madeit work, so I dont
know
