Hides inactive applications.

Overview

Spirited Away checks each running application's activity, and if an application isn't active for a certain fixed time, Spirited Away hides the application automatically. It is, in effect, Spirited Away :-)

I've been running Spirited Away for a year or two, and I don't know what computing would be without it. It does what it does, invisibly, with access right there on your menu bar. Brilliant software.

Great app - but it lost contact to its developer - does anyone know more?

Great little app. Still working in Maverick 10.9. I wish there was an option to change the hiding time to 0, so it would hide other apps right away instead of waiting the minimum 1 second.

It would be great if we can add some applications to the exclude list permanently. By "permanently" I mean that the system will remember the apps that have been added to the list, even after restarting. (I always have to manually add Safari and Finder to the exclude list manually, and this can sometimes be annoying.) PS: Please let me know if someone knows how to make a permanent exclude list for Spirited Away.

I remember the exclude list being permanent before, but either my memory is bad or the feature doesn't work that way anymore. I'm on Snow Leopard, could have been lost in an OS update since the last version of the app came out in 2009 :(

There's a bug on newer OS X systems which doesn't save the exclude list when changing it. Workaround: open the preferences, change the time to hide, close the preferences. When changing the time to hide you trigger the save preferences which also saves the exclude list.

This is a very neat little app, but I wish the status item could be greyed when SA is deactivated. I would suggest this direct to the developer, but I can find no way to contact them.
