Quit Running Apps is an action designed with one thing in mind: simplicity. The purpose is to save you time incase you needed to leave you computer in a hurry but you don't want to leave any running application.

The utility will quit all running apps and start the screen saver set in your preferences.

All applications will ask you to save any unsaved work before quitting, so don't worry about loosing your progress.

For extra privacy, you can set a password protection to wake your computer from screen saver in your system preferences.

Sorry for the late reply, I was away for quite sometime now.
Do you still have this problem? The link is up & running.
If you're facing any issue, try to the download page on my site, it should work for you.

Thanks for the support.

Why Da Heck isn't this built in to the OS???

Does the job with an occasional hiccup ( failed to launch screen saver once --- but I personally don't care about that) and failed to quit VLC twice out of several uses. I carry this laptop around and sleep it while transporting. Sooooo, i have a lot of apps that I forget about through out the day. Don't even get me started on the near invisible "running" indicator in the dock. "Show All" and Command Q a buncha individuals is an irritation at end-of-the-day shutdown time.

I really like this thing!
