Publisher description for Smart Screensaver Stopper

Smart Screensaver Stopper program icon

SMART Screensaver Stopper is a system tray applet that will Prevent the screensaver from launching, explicitly or by some set percent Threshold of CPU Currently in use. The app is helpful if some automated tasks that run take a lot of CPU. If these tasks, in conjunction with a CPU hungry screensaver, run at the same time, the CPU easily gets maxed. This app will allow the system to 'intelligently' determine whether the screensaver should present, allowing the former task to run without having its cycles chewed up by a screeensaver. The app is helpful for those running backup applications, servers with intermittent load stress, etc. Having the applet reside in the system tray allows you to perform all of these operations with only a couple of clicks. This allows much easier management of the screensaver -- rather than using the conventional 'Display Properties' dialog. Some of the more useful features: Disable screensaver with just a couple of clicks Ability to determine the current CPU in use, if above set threshold, the screensaver will not launch Ability to have applet startup when Windows starts Settings persist even after machine is rebooted Added auto-update feature that checks to see that the latest version is being used Nothing else on the Net available that performs the same functionality See ChangeLog.txt for detailed information regarding changes from versions & builds
