Comment (by soregums):

 This is really needed - I login to my pc with one password and use a
 different one for my keys. pageant runs while i'm logged in and I just
 connect to different servers whenever without typing in a password. since
 I use putty i only ever want to type in my 30 character password once per
 session. i don't want to save the password either, the only place it
 should be saved is in my head (true the phrase is in the ppk file, in that
 if you brute force it and get the pass phrase right it will be revealed as
 the last try).

 screen saver is set to come on after 10mins and ask to login in case i
 forget to lock my machine.

 thanks for doing a windows version of this software, I only found it as I
 was a OS X machine for a moment and needed to FTP something then noticed
 this does a whole lot of the connections too 1 program instead of many =
 good :)

 As soon as i can use pageant I'll donate, as right now I can't connect to
 sftp servers as typing my passphrase isn't working and I can't be bothered
 trying to get it to work as you are going to support pageant in an
 upcoming build and will just wait till then
