demo mode

demo mode: [Sun] n. 1. The state of being heads down in order
   to finish code in time for a demo, usually due yesterday.
   2. A mode in which video games sit by themselves running through a
   portion of the game, also known as `attract mode'.  Some serious
   apps have a demo mode they use as a screen saver, or may go
   through a demo mode on startup (for example, the Microsoft Windows
   opening screen --- which lets you impress your neighbors without
   actually having to put up with Microsloth Windows).
