An iAlertU screen, such as the one temporarily displayed upon activation with the following features:

1. Possible customization (easy to swap file but more user friendly-esque)

2. Will display a more explicit message informing observers of the security in place (possibly listing the features or warnings s/a "Do not attempt to move this computer"

3. WILL REMAIN ON SCREEN (and not disappear after a few seconds). This is crucial to deter innocent bystanders from unintentionally activating the alarm.

    (right-click iAlertU > show package contents > conents > resources > replace ialertu_large.png)
    but of course it disappears after a few seconds

    Sure, easy to do. However, wouldn't this burn your screen?
    We would have to move it randomly around the screen, and that is more work...
