Make it shut down when it receives any mouse movement or keyboard input,
and make it full screen instead of windowed. Screensavers are just .exe,

I tried using it as a screensaver, as is. The windowed mode kept it from
starting full screen, which was a bigger down side then having to hit
escape to turn it off.
