If you're tired of suffering from "Screensaver Attacks" during downloads, tape backups, disk scans, and defrags -- Hotspot is a neat little remedy. Hotspot allows you to preset two hotspots on your screen, activated by your mouse pointer --one to keep that screensaver off, the other to pop it on instantly. There's a user-sizable reminder that parks in the hot corner when the "saver is off." (The instant "screensaver-on" capability is great for when the boss walks in while you're playing solitaire.....) Optional tray icon. 30-day evaluation, with nag reminders.

Upgrades are posted at CatchUP Software, at, for registered users and Catchup subscribers. Requires the VB 4.0 32-bit Run time Module VB40032.exe on your system, downloadable if needed, at the program's home page.
