  • AMS as 'screensaver'

    Is it possible to use AMS to run a .pps file as a screensaver type operation, ie after say five minutes inactivity?

    It is possible to run a Power Point Presentation (see http://www.indezine.com/products/pow...ppautorun.html) as for it being timed AutoPlay Menu studio does not have a build in timer. What some people do to simulate a timer is make a blank AVI video (of a specific length) then on video finish they do a specific action. I'm not sure about making a power point presentation close when the mouse is moved (to act like a screen saver) that is up to you.

      I'll remember that for future use but it doesn't solve my immediate problem, I want to run AMS and let users browse the web via a URL, but after 5 minutes of nothing happening I want it do default to a looping Powerpoint show. When a new user presses 'esc' to leave Powerpoint, it'll go back to AMS. It's just that timing that's stopping me!
