[ubuntu] can't ssh into server unless a user is logged in

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – So I've managed to set up my desktop to be used as ssh server when needed. I can ssh into it from my laptop both in and out of the network, but only when I have physically logged into the desktop. Authentication is setup for only RSA public/private key. I've uncommented the line in sshd_config that points towards the 'authorized_keys' file in ~/.ssh/ Not sure what I should do, didn't have this problem in 8.10. Only arose when I did a clean install to 9.10. Let me know if I should attach my sshd_config, known_hosts, authorized_keys, etc. (HowTos)
