I'm no expert AppleScripter (as the following proves), but it would be easier to write if each Applications folder is absolutely identical to every other. You might then write something with Script Editor like this that would cover every app in each machine:

Tell application "Asteroids"
activate
quit
end tell
tell application "Bozo Breath"
activate
quit
end tell

etc. etc. through the entire list in the apps folder, then the Utilities folder apps, I suppose.

I'm sure there's an easier, faster way of writing it, involving repeats, aliases and stuff. But this one, unwieldy as it might get, should work I think.

If you try it, save the AppleScript as an application. If the script stalls, insert delays between each application and/or between each activation and quit:

tell application "Asteroids"
activate
delay 1
quit
end tell
delay 2
tell application "Bozo Breath"
activate

etc. etc. You can lengthen the delays by using higher numbers. If you store the script in the Apps folder, don't include it in the list.
