How can I force disabling of the Java web plugin each time I reboot or login?


http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5242 says that after the most recent(Apr 2012) security update "If the Java web plug-in detects that no applets have been run for an extended period of time it will again disable Java applets."

But I notice that if I switch the Java plugin in Safari on and forget to switch it back off again after use, it takes at least a few days (maybe more) for OSX to switch it off automatically. So I'd like to shorten the wait period, or ideally each time I reboot or login.


TIA, Doug.

I've used cron on BSD systems (many moons ago), BTW, if that's what it takes, though I was hoping there's a nice higher-level facility I can use.
