That's Freeze Utilities and none of my warnings about FreezeMan apply in
this case, good reliable software.

FreezeMan has that option too, if it wasn't that buggy it would be good
software ;-)

You'll enjoy it even more, Gesture Launch on 2.0 models was very spare
compared to what it can do on a 2x00.

I agree.

NewtCase (the utility suite with Gesture Launch Extension Manager etc.) is
now permanently on sale for $25.00, don't know if a combined discount still
applies, it can be found on:

NewtCase takes a bit of betting used to (Dan Rowley's interface idea's
aren't mine) but in the end beats most other suites as far as I'm concerned.
