AutoSave software

autosave auto save c# blackdoom ali randomness
ok I know I posted this in the forums before, but right now I haz nothing going on so I might as well post it here:

soo, this is my first project that I'm posting, this a program I wrote in C# for games/software that don't have an auto-save feature and by that, I mean that every x minutes it will automatically save your file/project on the program that you are working on, for example, if you are working in Microsoft Word, you can set the program to save every 3 minutes, that way you don't have to remember saving your document and you wont be interrupted by it:

how does it work:

1- you type in the shortcut for the save key, (i.e. "ctrl+s" which is written as "^s" in the QuickSave textbox)
2- set the time between auto-saves (i.e. 1:50)
3-(NEW) just click on the "Shortcut for start/stop" textbox and press any combination of keys that you like for starting/stopping the auto-save process
4- when you are in the program that you are working on (i.e. photoshop) just press short cut key that you made and it will start/stop the auto-save process

right now it only works for the programs that you are currently working on (sort of like a macro), but If people like it, I'm planning to make it support multiple running programs (from reading the processes/window names and sending targeted keystrokes) and also create profiles for each program so you don't have to setup the autosave for each program individually.

please leave comments and suggestions :) and if any one wants the source code feel free to ask

Very cool, in my opinion would be well worth adding the support for multiple running programs. When I've left something open and been working on something else is when I tend to close stuff without saving.  I think "what did I leave all that open for?", then close and click without paying much attention....
