    I've searched here, looked at AutomatorWorld and checked the info on Apple's site, but can't figure it out.

    Can I use Automator to make my PB automatically switch to my Logitech USB headset in all apps (= in System Prefs, I guess I mean) each time it's plugged in, and un-switch when I unplug it?

    I just need to know if I'm barking up the completely wrong tree here :p

    I don't think so - not least since Automator only has 'actions' for a limited number of applications.

    Automator is more of a batch processor for files/URLs where you're doing exactly the same task for each - with perhaps a few minor changes like where you are saving it.

    Ahh - that makes it a lot clearer. I was barking up the wrong tree :eek:
