LazyMouse is a Preference Pane that moves your cursor to the default button whenever a dialog box appears on your screen. In other words, it will save you time moving the mouse to dismiss dialogs.

Unfortunately only works on some dialogs and not on all. Many applicatoins come up with similar looking blue buttons that seem to be coded differently so LazyMouse doesn't recognize them. The problem is that you never know what to expect and so it becomes an attention grabbing feature. I think for $10 it should always work.

This was on earlier Apples. It should be in OS X. I objected to the price, but just skipped a couple of Starbuck's Latte Grandes. It was well worth the sacrifice. Download the free trial and see. Click - done!

btw, if you want to follow guns' advice, you will want to turn on full keyboard access in the keyboard preference pane.

I can see how this could be useful, but then you could just learn to press enter (for blue-lighted buttons) and space (for blue-outlined buttons) for dialogs. You can also just tab over to the desired button and then press space to select it.

I'm only mentioning this since it does cost $10.

Does what it says, no more and no less, just like well behaved applications are supposed to do. I like it.

Great little preferance pane especially if you use your trackpad on your laptop. It saves you having to constantly scroll around the page saying yes to this, no to that etc etc etc.
