Notebook that auto-executes when opened?

Possible to set an option for a notebook such that it automatically 
begins executing when opened, that is, when the nb icon is dbl-clicked 
on the desktop, or however else files are opened in the operating system 
that's being used?

I guess I'm also assuming here an OS which, along with opening the file 
itself, if necessary first opens the app which executes the file, since 
that's the only type of OS that I'm familiar with.  Are there any 
Mathematica compatible operating systems that don't do this?
