AppStartSaver is a simple screensaver for Mac OS X that launches a regular Mac application or a Unix executable of your choice when the screensaver starts. I originally developed it to help automatically launch clients for the Stanford Folding@Home project, but have since found other uses for it. AppStartSaver will launch Mac OS X applications or Unix command-line executables. It will not, yet, launch Classic applications or Applescripts. I'm working on that.

Note: You can control the opacity or transparency of the black window that the screen saver uses to blank the screen. If you set it to transparent, you'll see the regular Mac more...
