Spanner is a preference pane that allows you to assign custom launch or quit actions to any application on your drive. As well as AppleScript and key emulation support, special actions include activation and deactivation of hot corners and sound.

Spanner is primarily useful in certain games which fail to disable the hot corners; no more Exposé mid-match!
