vishalkbhatt has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have written a perl script which runs in the background right after a user logs in on a window xp machine.My script takes screen shots of the current screen at random time intervals while running in background and commits the image to a server via Subversion. Now the script runs fine until the user is working on the computer. But if he locks the computer or the screen saver is started (which also locks the pc soon) then the script stops working. So can I keep the script running in any circumstances ???

    Hmmm, seems my earlier post didn't make it. Anyway, just wanted to post a warning here that this guy is up to no good (just in case it isn't bleeding obvious from the question anyway). See this thread for clarification of what this script is for: Re^2: How to access shared protected folder over network
