Is there a easy way to allow a automatic login on a non-sudo account to a server that requires physical access when used. I want to turn on the computer and have it automatically log in to my not sudo user without me entering any user names and passwords?

I don't understand the use case. If truly headless, the user logs in using ssh as needed. Why start a (headless) user session that won't be used? –  user535733 Jan 20 '13 at 2:47
