I have a Max patch running a kiosk that uses external sensors through a MIDItron, and the computer has no computer keyboard or mouse attached to it. I want the screen saver to kick in when no one is using the kiosk for awhile, but when they touch a sensor I’d like to wake the screen saver (OS X). Only thing is, the Mac seems to respond only to computer key presses or mouse movement. Any suggestions on a Max/MSP/Jitter object that will respond to a sensor and stop the screen saver?
Alternatively, can I get Jitter to see files in a folder recursively and display them, that is, to see new files as they are added to the folder and put the new files into the screen saver slide show queue automatically?
