DVD Player
Authored by: A craftyIdiot on Jan 02, '04 07:25:56AM

If you have a mac that has a DVD drive in it, try playing a DVD. From what I have seen, it does not disable screen dimming (on my 12" powerbook), but it does stop my computer from going to sleep or turning off the screen. It's really nice, I remember in Jaguar where I had to instinctivly move the mouse every minute in order to prevent my laptop, in incredibly low-power mode, from shutting off the screen.

It seems that this is more of a hidden apple-only secret, because in Panther, Salling Clicker cannot do this, like it did in Jaguar. But, Salling Clicker didn't really prevent the screensaver, it actually would turn it off when you came within range of the computer (it's really nice).
