I too can reproduce the beep by turning on Check for changes....

Before I apply and commit this patch I would like to know how many  
people have a problem.  I cannot reproduce the failure to activate  
problem on my powerbook running 10.5.1.  For me, the code (without  
this patch) activates Skim just fine after typesetting the document.   
If Skim does not activate for you after a successful typeset I would  
like to know more about your environment to see if this is really  
necessary or not.  Extra applescript just slows everything down.

- do you have Check for changes checked in Skim?
- What settings do you have in Latex Preferences?
- What version of Mac OS are you using?
