Pause on screensaver?

Hello:

I'm looking for a plugin that pauses WA when my screen saver starts. I've looked around, but haven't been able to find anything. Does such a thing exist?

Thanks!
Ultra

Pause Winamp when locking Windows

I was looking for the same thing … well sort of.

I was looking for a plug-in that would pause Winamp when I manually lock Windows.
Ideally, I also wanted this plug-in to resume playback when I came back and unlocked Windows.
If options existed to pause/resume playback based on a timed screensaver … bonus.

After searching, I found two such plug-ins:So as you can see from the screenshots, MLC Advanced Auto Pause has more configurable options, but I ended up going with DoJoe's Screen Lock Detector. Advanced Auto Pause pauses playback as soon as one clicks CTRL+ALT+DELETE.
Screen Lock Detector doesn’t pause playback until one clicks the “Lock Computer” button after clicking CTRL+ALT+DELETE. This seems more accurate to me, as one might have another reason for clicking CTRL+ALT+DELETE (like accessing the Task Manager).

I also found the following plug-ins, but didn’t test them myself as it seems they are optimized for use with NT/Win2K
(and NOT XP):

Just trying to share my findings so that others won't have to do the same research.
It was either re-use an existing old thread or start a new one.

Hope you enjoyed running up your post count.
