On Idle Script in Login Items Doesn't Stay Open
I have an On Idle Applescript application, saved with stay-open selected, that works perfectly if I open it after I've logged in (i.e. it stays open and does its thing), but seems to return immediately if I put it in my login items. Any idea why this happens or how to troubleshoot what's happening?
Here's the script in case it helps. It sets the mouse off in the corner of my screen if certain apps are running and if PandoraBoy is running it quits it if it remains in a paused state for too long (I launch PandoraBoy from Plex and I need PandoraBoy to quit so Plex will relaunch). Thanks for any help!
property idleTime : 3 global mouseLoc global counter global counterMax set mouseLoc to "maybeBad" set counter to 0 set counterMax to 3 on idle tell application "System Events" set thisApp to name of first process whose frontmost is true if thisApp is "EyeTV" or thisApp is "Hulu Desktop" or thisApp is "Plex" then if mouseLoc is "maybeBad" then do shell script "python -c 'from Quartz import *; CGEventPost(kCGHIDEventTap, CGEventCreateMouseEvent(None, kCGEventMouseMoved, CGPointMake(0,1080), kCGMouseButtonLeft))'" set mouseLoc to "maybeGood" end if else set mouseLoc to "maybeBad" end if if thisApp is "PandoraBoy" then tell application "PandoraBoy" activate if player state is paused then --say "player not playing" set counter to (counter + 1) else set counter to 0 end if if counter is counterMax then set counter to 0 quit end if end tell else set counter to 0 end if end tell return idleTime end idle
