Michael,

A more succinct way to put this:

It would be nice if this screensaver had an option to "Jump Back to Now
Playing on Wake".

I think that's really what I mean. Makes sense?

Thanks,

Thanks for the feedback!

I uploaded v1.1 to http://www.herger.net/slim/ which should add this
option (plus fix some issues with empty playlists).
