Hi,
I have an XP pro machine at work that I am using as a kind of admin/monitoring station for the network. I have various utilities and monitoring apps that are used to display that status of different aspects of the network. Does anybody know of a way (utility, screensaver etc.) to have an XP machine automatically switch between active applications every 10 seconds or so - kind of like a repeating slideshow for live windows!

Would consider upgrade to vista if necessary.
thanks

Just use a script like Auto IT and a timer. Somthing like:

START:
WinActivate, WINDOW 1 TITLE
Sleep, 10000
WinActivate, WINDOW 2 TITLE
GOTO START

Auto IT: http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/downloads.shtmlhttp://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/downloads.shtml

sorry would need another sleep but you get the idea:

START:
WinActivate, WINDOW 1 TITLE
Sleep, 10000
WinActivate, WINDOW 2 TITLE
Sleep, 10000
GOTO START
