I run workrave on my computer, when I play fullscreen games like warzone2100, it would like this program to be killed automatically and restart when the full-screen app quits.

Any ideas?

I suppose you could use Devil's Pie for the killing and a cronjob polling for those running fullscreen applications, (re)starting workrave if none is found – sr_ Dec 23 '12 at 16:06
