Not a screensaver itself, this is a tiny applet which runs your chosen saver on the OSX Desktop, while still allowing desktop icons. It doesn't register as an app so does not get in the way of app switching. It installs a menu in the righthand side of the menubar, this is where the off button is. If for some reason the custom menu does not appear, you'll have to open Utilities/Activity Monitor (in pre-Panther use Utilities/Process Viewer) to then Quit the Moving Desktop manually. If Moving Desktop fails to launch (solid white desktop?) then reset your saver choice via System Preferences and try again.

The "Flurry" saver was animated around the About Box when I took the screenshot.

It's cool, but doesn't seem to work at all for for a second monitor, also doesn't allow lower-rez modes for performance or the selection of a particular saver (uses system setting).

The background app/open at startup is great though.
