On Idle

Note to Self:

When writing an applescript program that needs to run in the background and do something, do not use a loop with a delay inside it. (It hogs the CPU).

Instead, use an “on idle”, and save with “Stay Open” checked.

 on idle
  set secondsInterval to 5
  return secondsInterval
 end idle
