There is nothing to do when you start FRSWiggle. The application will attempt to prevent the Windows screensaver from starting. It will also attempt to prevent your computer's display and the computer itself from going into "sleep" mode.

You might ask yourself why those are important. FRSWiggle can be used when you have to spend a lot of time monitoring a software application on your computer screen, but you don't want to or need to interact with the screen. If that monitoring goes on longer than the Windows screensaver is set to, then it may start, which may be annoying.

Another scenario we have discovered is that when you want to use our FRSPCReboot™ or FRSPCShutdown™ in a batch file that takes a long time to run. If the screensaver starts while that batch file is running, and especially if the screensaver is set up to prompt for a password (which is highly recommended), Windows will not allow the computer to shut-down or reboot unless you first enter the password. You may think that the computer is going to be shut-down or reboot, when in actuality it doesn't. By starting FRSWiggle at the start of the batch file, you can prevent that from happening. Of course, please realize that while FRSWiggle is running, anyone can see or have access to your computer.

When you close FRSWiggle, the previous screensaver and power-savings settings are restored.

How Do I Get the Latest Version?

For free applications we do not support automatic upgrading from within the application. We, therefore, recommend that you check our News page (see above) from time to time to see if we have released a new version of FRSWiggle. The application is fairly stable in the feature set we want to include in it, so upgrades shouldn't happen very often. If a new version is made available, simply download it via the "Download" tab above. You can safely install over top of the previous installation, as it will preserve your settings and data.
