how does Alfred start the screen saver?

Recommended Posts

I am experiencing a bug in Big Sur where this AppleScript…


tell application "System Events" to start current screen saver


…does nothing, even though it has long been the way to start the current screen saver from the command line or a shell script.


However, Alfred's "Start Screen Saver" feature by using the `screensaver` keyword DOES work, so it is clearly doing something else.


How can I incorporate Alfred's method of starting the screen saver into a script?
