Quick Look: AutoLaunch is a screensaver that will launch any installed channel you've specified while your Roku is idle, without going back to your home screen. For example, if you choose Netflix to be your default channel in this screensaver, the Netflix channel will launch after your Roku has been idle for the specified time period.
You may question why you would want a channel to automatically launch when you aren't using your Roku, but that is in explained in the Roku channel store description: "If you use a Roku player or Roku TV for digital signage, this will restart the sign channel after a power interruption, or if you turn off your device overnight." Of course, the usefulness of this screensaver will depend on whether the selected channel automatically plays content. If you have to select content for streaming after the channel launches, this screensaver will be useless as it can only launch the channel - it cannot select any content for streaming.
NOTE: Screensavers do not work like regular channels. They must be activated from the Settings menu. See this article for more details on setting up a screensaver on your Roku.
