    Title pretty much says it all
    If the playlist is paused, I would like it to play
    If no playlist is selected, I would like it to play whatever was played last

    EDIT: I found a program that does this. DroidShuffle

    At one point I was using an application called tasker to do this for me
    But it was pretty buggy and stopped working one day (found out it had expired)

    Website in case you're wondering: Tasker for Android

    One app that is great at things like this is Setting Profiles. Download the Lite version and see if it does what you want. I have the full version ($2.95) which allows unlimited rules (it's like Locale, but better). The lite version allows one rule, but I see that one condition is when "wired headset attached." You can create a rule that starts an app when the condition is met. I just tried it and when I plug a headset in, the app starts right up. I haven't played with it to see if the screen has to be on or not, but give it a shot. I also don't know if it hits the play button or if you still have to press it. I had it load Slacker it is started playing on it's own when I plugged the headset in. Good luck.

    DroidShuffle. It's made for use with a headset with media controls, but there is an option to start music on headphone insert
    Tested and it works
