    Um, I guess you could if you wanted to... Just disable your screensaver and bring Dashboard up - that should do the trick...

    Not on an LCD monitor. Well, nothing permanent. :)

    You are correct. Unless of course the OP is using a plasma display with his Mac... ;) :D

    If you're interested, Dasher will activate your dashboard after a predetermined amount of time (just like a screen saver).

    No no no, don't be silly, I meant the soon-to-be-released-at-MWSF 38.4" plasma iMac... :rolleyes: ;)

    Oooh, nice little app, I wasn't aware of that one - thanks for the link. :)

    Just out of curiosity, Cybergypsy, what do you have on your Dashboard (that you'll leave up)?
