    Cockpit Startup

    I have a question which has probably been answered before.
    How do i make external addon software like gauges and in my case freefd not be displaying until i go through my start up procedures. Its impossible for me to have a "cold dark cockpit" when i first enter my cockpit as freefd and a few other standby gauges are already displaying as soon as fsx is started. I want to basically be able to hit my master battery toggle etc and have the cockpit spring to life. I hope i have made my question clear enough and its not to dumb a question

    Cheers Steve

    One easy way:
    Plug all your monitors on one single bar with a switch
    Have all your programs on Automatic start-up (windows) with your bar (monitors) in the OFF position.
    When everything is running switch on the bar toggle and your instruments will come to life,
