hmm, but the ones i'm talking about, you click to get back to workbench at any point. Surely intuition would know that workbench had just been reactivated/mouse clicked, and the (hyperthetical) program concerned could reset the timer for the next one, and wait a user specified time without any user input? Then it would run a chosen demo, list of demos, or a random choice from a directory.

I currently run one manually if I leave the Amiga on for and i'm away from it.

The only problem I can see, is that they generally do not quit with a mouse movement, only with a mouse click. But you could just do that when you get back.

Obviously, the heavy more recent demo's require too much free chip ram, we'd have to check them and see how much they required, perhaps have different catagories depending on how much chip ram was available.

examples that run when I only have 1.45MB chip are:

Push -Extreme
reprocess 4 -Da Jormas
ront kolli -Da Jormas
Carbon -tulou
rain-TBL
