There is no init process under cygwin.

That'll *really* slow down opening the cygwin bash shell if it has to
start up a couple of heavy-duty servers every time, but it's your choice.

That is to say, the .bashrc in your $HOME directory.

which details how you could get the cygwin version of postgresql up and
running as a system service. I haven't tried that myself so I can't vouch
