The "non-sticly" settings is a function of not being able to save things in the "System file". Where is the system file? Maybe you should save it to My Documents\MySystem.ini. Maybe it is in an inaccessible place for non-administrators (left over from running it as admin some time in the past).

It's a good idea to start FMx up at the beginning of the night rather than having it start/stop all night.
