Does anyone know of a way (or program) to make MIDI data stop the windows screensaver or power saving mode, switch the power "profile" or anything similar?
I.E., if the screensaver is running and I tap a few notes on my (piano) keyboard, the screensaver should shut off, and if I'm playing a song, the screensaver should not start.
The problem is that if I'm playing music on-screen with my MIDI keyboard, the screensaver may turn on, so I have to move a hand from the MIDI keyboard to the computer keyboard or mouse.
I'd like to do this without disabling the screensaver, so that after 10 minutes of MIDI (or mouse or keyboard) inactivity, the screensaver comes on as usual.
I am running MIDI-OX (http://www.midiox.com/) all the time, which routes my keyboard to an external sound module.
Thanks, and great forum. I'm a long-time lurker.
