I  have the only auto booting Plus/4 ever made by Commodore.   (Well 
Fred Bowen and I cooked up a way to replace the rom with the built-in 
programs with a simple routine on EPROM  that shoved the load "*", 8 
into the  keyboard queue follewed by
the rU  and then print these to the screen followed by a Home 
chr$(47)? and 3 or 4 chr$(13) returns.

Easier (for the 64) is to get a Quick Brown Box memory cart and use 
that to store your program on so that the QBB auto boots at power on. 
I  use that at the store for my cashdrawer point of saile terminal
