It would be wonderful if it were possible to select another screensaver for your desktop than the one appearing as your ”actual” screensaver!

Watching the same thing when you take a break as you just saw while you were working, is a bit boring…

Thanks! It works as advertised. It even fixes the problem of others that stop when the screensaver runs and then you have to relaunch.

Unfortunately it has been pointed out to me that it *doesn't* work with slideSaver or qtz screensavers. I've got qtz working now but I'm having a devil of a time getting the slideSavers to look right. Hope to have it done tonight and released today.
