What is Eclipse?

Introducing Eclipse 3: a lean, mean, 100 percent PowerPC native screen saving machine that works great on 68K Macs as well. To eliminate the problem of extension conflicts, we designed Eclipse as an application so that it retains the benefits of extension-based screen savers while avoiding their propensity to cause problems. After all, a screen saver is supposed to save your screen, not crash your machine.

Unlike some other screen savers, Eclipse uses very little memory and processor time to do its job. Thus, Eclipse will never slow down your Macintosh. However, even with Eclipse’s svelte form, it offers all of the useful features you could ever want in a screen saver, presented in an elegant and straight-forward user interface.

Moreover, Eclipse doesn’t merely dim the screen; it displays the current time floating on the screen, graphics (PICTs, JPEGs and GIFs) and QuickTime™ movies from a folder full of choices. You can select the graphics and movies to be displayed by dropping them into the Eclipse Graphics folder. In addition, Eclipse offers such conveniences as password protection, and you can customize its extensive feature set any way you like.

In addition to these traditional phosphor burn-in prevention methods, Eclipse can control the Energy Saver features of the MacOS.  You can set how long you'd like an idle machine to wait before automatic monitor deactivation, hard drive spindown, and computer shutdown. All of these protective measures can reduce physical wear on system components, and can result in increased cost savings through reduced energy bills.
