How DO I switch Accounts Without Exiting the Game? SWTOR requires the admin password to run, and my parents go to bed early, once my sister is off, I'd like to switch to my account. Anyone know how to switch to my acc without exiting?

You can't.
Each account must be logged on separately.

Seriously? Your parents do not trust their 16+ yo (PEGI rating of the game) offspring with admin password? Sheesh...

If you have a shortcut (if you don't you can make one by right-click->copy to ... desktop), you can rightclick it, go to properties, then on the top there should be a "C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\BioWare\Star Wars-The Old Republic\launcher.exe". Click on this textbox and add after the last " the following: runas /savecred /user:administrator. Your parents only have to type the password once more, and then they won't have to type it down anymore when you start the game.

The answer is: Don't.
Keep playing on your sisters account until she gets upset enough to complain to your parents and then you counter with "but if you let me play without admin password, this won't happen again and we'll all be happy".
Apparantly I have multiple accounts. And apparantly I argue with myself on those accounts.

Why do I get the feeling your parent don't want you to play after they go to bed....in which case you are asking us ways to help you break your parents' rules.
Ultimately I am a much more reasonable person when people reply to what I actually wrote instead of what they decided I meant with it

There are 2 easy steps
1) plant drugs in your sisters room
2) tell your parents you saw her using drugs

Now you can play all you want.

This probably has more to do with bedtime than the game. Like they don't want their kid staying up until 4 am gaming, lol.
