Developer website: Matt Swann

ScriptSaver is a Mac OS X screen saver which executes AppleScripts when it is activated and/or deactivated. For example, ScriptSaver can pause iTunes when the screensaver is activated, then unpause it when you return to the computer. It's limited only by what AppleScripts you write!

What's New

Version 3.0:
  • The desktop can be shown while the activation or deactivation script runs -- so you can display dialogs and messages to the user
  • The desktop can be shown in place of a screensaver (the "None" option now leaves the screensaver transparent)
  • Deactivation scripts are less flaky -- they can be launched synchronously so that Mac OS X doesn't terminate them prematurely
  • The iTunes Visualizer can be used in place of a screensaver

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.5 or later
