How to make a windows 8 metro app autostart? (skype)

Hi there.

When I turn on skype metro app- it will run in the background, even when Im in desktop mode. But if I dont turn it on, nobody can call me :( How to make it autostart? And I mean autostart - work in background, not "autostart and freeze because Im in desktop"...


Thank you in advance.
