I do see the menu entry within GUI Launcher and I am able to select 'create collections' but while doing so the window disappears and literally nothing happens. The screen again shows my sent items unsorted and cluttered.
How are you organizing the books in the kindle? I'm using "<collection_name>/<series_index>.<title>" AFAIK, it has to be that way.

Thus, I expected to go into screensaver mode after all collections have been created, but nothing happens...
So you start it and it never run goes into the screensaver? If that happens then maybe the script must be finishing early because of an error. You can install the usb-network thing, telnet into the kindle and run the script to see what it is doing, it actually prints what it is doing.

No idea.

The only way is the "going to screensaver" mode. If it at the screensaver, its done.

I have 200 something books, and it creates the collections very fast (seconds)

Yes, I already mentioned the format im using before.

I fixed that problem, it can process folders/books with spaces and apostrophes

The best thing to do is log into the kindle through telnet and run the script yourself to see if it is giving you an error, that's how I found/fixed the spaces/apostrophes problems. Maybe there's something different with the localized ones.
