We do not include the option to disable automatic startup within the Tobii software directly, however you configure the application to load manually by launching ‘services.msc’ from the run command via start menu, navigating to ‘Tobii Service’ and selecting ‘Manual’ as startup type.
For us to help you any further with the issue regarding that your mouse and keyboard becomes unresponsive, could you please submit a request with our support? You can submit a request on https://help.tobii.com
Please also attach your log files. You can collect log files by right clicking on the Tobii icon and then Troubleshoot – Collect diagnostic data. ?
I’ll create a request for an option to turn off auto start.
I would like to add my support for an option to turn off auto start (of the tray app). Disabling the service doesn’t really work for me as it breaks Windows Hello support but the tray app is not required for that.
I also agree with the op. This sort of behavior is not nice and you need to provide a way to disable this. You as the software company need to respect the end user’s sovereignty over their system. You have made a purposeful decision to hide the ability to disable the autostart from typical users. Why? To force data collection I would imagine. Shame.
