Wow, just downloaded and tried this, and it works great! (24 inch iMac Intel with SL 10.6.2) Really nice looking and festive....just love it! Makes me want to open my widgets just to look at it. :) Love to have something like this for my desktop. Thanks to the developer, and holiday greetings to all.

Just got a new Macbook and am having trouble installing different light sets. Also can't seem to get it to switch to the colored lightset. Haven't had an issue with this on my other computer, but for some reason it's just not happening when dragging the set into the white tag...

Sorry about that! If you haven't found it yet, I've released version 4.2 which fixes this problem. It should appear here on macupdate, shortly, but in the meantime you can find it directly on my site.

This is a brilliant idea but it should be built as an ordinary application and not a widget. The reasons are: 1. Prompting the Dashboard display all the widgets so one have to quit them all. 2. Even if you quit all the widget the dock still shows. The application should have a full screen mode so the display would not sleep.

Ditto -- Please add my vote for developer to make a build of this that runs as a standalone, non-widget, application. I am one of those folks who rarely use widgets, and most of the time i have Dashboard disabled. (saving my system RAM and CPU for apps I want active) I certainly would not activate Dashboard and have it active on all the time just to get the lights. Thus my request for stand-alone app. Thank you.

Great implementation of bringing blinky festiveness to your dashboard. Done well, nice options and and the ability to create and download additional lightsets gives the widget some longevity in my dashboard. This kind of thing will make my wife's holiday. A loading message at startup may be nice, as on first run I was starring at a single light for about 20 seconds (on my multitasking iMac) trying to figure out how to configure it. Suddenly my screen was filled with blinking lights, and I realized all was well.

All of my widgets run semi-regular update checks in order to alert you when new versions become available. While it is some network activity, it's quite lightweight and isn't transmitting any personal data to the server. Still, I hope you enjoy it. - Eben
