  1. Derp, nvm I didn't check what OS I was replying to. Disregard this.
  2. I don't think there is a way to keep it open even when logged out.
  3. You would have to remain logged in and keep the Minecraft server running while you want it active.
  4. If you run the server from the command line, use & to run it in the background and nohup to keep it running after you log out.
