    Screen saver with virtual screens
    Is there a screen saver that rotates through a selected series of virtual screen/spaces?

    I'm not 100% sure what you mean by a "virual screen".

    Do you mean a depiction/image of a computer monitor on your computer monitor running a screen saver??

    If so...that's kind of "deep"! Or maybe we're just having some terminology confusion.

    Mac "spaces" are also known more generically as "virtual screens". I would like a screen saver more that just rotated randomly between all open spaces.

    But the spaces that are not visible won't show a screen saver, and if you touch a key or the touchpad to move to the space with the screen saver, it's going to end because of the key touch. So what are you trying to accomplish with an invisible and never to be seen screen saver on a non-visible, requires a touch to display space?

    I think he means one which rotates each space into view. Kinda like changing spaces at regular intervals. That would be the screensaver.

    Ah, thanks Craig! Never read it that way. So it's more of a desktop rotator than a true screen saver.
