Restart your sim. She'll be cold and dark. Just make sure you selected cold/dark in the setup gauge, then close FS and restart it. Your bird will be cold/dark every time from now on unless you further set it up otherwise in the setup options.

is your default flight in FS the actual default flight that comes boxed? has to be Cessna 172 with default settings at KSEA.

Hmmm. Well, i tried. That's all I know. Cold/Dark works fine for me.The steps i used precisely were:Download the 757 **drools**Wipe drool off keyboard while waiting for download.After download/install, install liveries of choiceStart FSSelect 757 in creat a flight screenSelect "Fly now" NOTE: i did not worry about airport or time here as at this time i was just setting up the 757 optionsOnce 757 is loaded AND stabalized, open the SET buttonSelect airline optionsSelect IRS preference (I chose realistic)Select cold/dark optionSelect OK NOTE: Selecting "OK" is VERY important here.Close FSWipe more drool off keyboardRestart FSSelect 757 in creat a flight screenSelect airportSelect timeSelect "Fly now"My 757 loaded cold/dark and still does. If you followed the steps above -- drooling is optional -- then it should have set up fine. If not, i suspect a file somewhere did not set up properly and you may want to consider completely uninstalling, reinstalling and trying again.

We are aware of this, As I have said before and during early testing of the 777, so long time ago, I have always had the same prob...For the testing of the 757 it was the same, and as some others I use a french version of XP and FS...So, I am willing to think that some one from the programming is looking into this.Cyrille de LattreAsus P4P800/PIV 3 Ghz/2 Giga DDRAMATI X800 GT 256 MegWin XP SP2 / FS9.1 PSS Beta tester

I found a solution...I loaded the 757 and then I turned it off, all switches and systems. Afther that I saved the flight. Now, when I want to fly the 757 from cold&dark, I load the saved flight then I change the modelliveryairporttime and everything is ok...Although it takes a lot of time, this is a functional solution
