10.4: A script to use the Dashboard as a screensaver
Authored by: davidacox on Mar 03, '06 10:15:14AM

I whacked together a little applescript to launch Front Row on a system (it was part of an app called "Front Row Remote"). The code that I used for the activating of Front Row was:

tell application "Front Row"
end tell

tell application "System Events"
key code 53
end tell

You may need to turn on "Enable access for assistive devices" in your Universal Access control panel to allow System Events to send that key stroke (I can't test from where I am).

Good luck.
