    I created a "Battery Mode" automator app which turns off a lot of menu bar apps, and I added:

    "killall 'SteerMouse Manager'" which turns off SteerMouse as I dont need that until i get home.

    I also have a "Regular Mode" automator app, but i cant figure out how to turn SteerMouse back on using Automator, as its not available in the app list. Anyone got any idea?

    This Terminal command should launch an app. Can you try that with whatever the Steermouse app is called in there.

    Code:
    open -a ApplicationName

    Thank you!!!!

    That was exactly what I needed, i put that right into the shell script thingy and now my "Regular Mode" automator app also re-starts the mouse dameon.

    2 hours i spent googling this and got answers that were way too complicated for me to understand lol.
