AppleScript to disable screen saver

  • Posted: 24 November 2008 11:28 AM

    I am new to AppleScript and would like to write a script to disable my screen saver.  I searched the web and found a script at http://forums.appleinsider.com/showthread.php?t=63391

    that seemed to kind of do what I was looking for.  However when I run the script I get an error with the following text:

    System Events got an error: Can?t set property list item “idleTIme” of property list file “Macintosh:Users:stevewetzel:Library:Preferences:ByHost:com.apple.screensaver..Mac.001b6393d9e7.plist” to 10.

    Am I on the right track?  What am I doing wrong?
