I guarantee that 64-bit won't gain you anything at all in this case over 32-bit running on Intel. This is such a small and simple application that there's no benefit whatsoever to going beyond 32-bit, even on a system running all 64-bit stuff otherwise. Well, maybe a tiny psychological advantage for those who absolutely can't stand to have their system "polluted" by 32-bit stuff, but certainly no real-world advantage. ;)

That said, many thanks to the original author and to the hint submitter for calling attention to it! This program gives me a great idea to simulate an intermittent screen problem in my custom anti-theft script for my MacBook. Can't wait to try it out.
