commandCommand to execute when the Windows screen saver is activated






SCREENMONITOR will set its trigger when the Windows screen saver is activated.


If you don't enter any arguments, if SCREENMONITOR is active it will display the repeat count and the command.


The command line will be parsed and expanded before SCREENMONITOR is executed, so if you want to pass redirection characters or variables to command you will need to protect them (by enclosing in single back quotes, doubling the %'s, or using command grouping).


If the last argument on the line is a single (, it is interpreted as the beginning of a command group. SCREENMONITOR will append the following lines (in a batch file) or prompt you for more input (at the command line) until it gets a closing ).


The monitoring runs asynchronously in a separate thread. When the condition is triggered, the command will be executed immediately. This may cause problems if you try to write to the display or access files while the main TCC thread is also performing I/O. You may need to use START or DETACH in command to avoid conflicts.
