When I boot up the host computer I'd like the VM to boot up too and enter unity mode. Both OS's are Windows 7. How can I do this?

Use Pause/Resume on the virtual machine instead of starting it up and shutting it down. Add a scheduled task to resume the VM on startup.

startup.bat "c:\program files (x86)\VMware\Vmware Workstation\vmrun.exe" -T ws unpause "c:\vm\UnityVM.vmx"
