Power Supply and Driver? Answered

I've seen alot of the projects that have a power supply and a driver?  What's the difference between the two and why would you need both?

You can't have a driver without a power supply or battery which is a
source of electrical energy.

Then an amplifier could be a driver for a speaker or a mosfet could
be used as a drive for a motor, the uP pin that drives the gate of the
mosfet is a driver too.. 
A driver is a electric component that performs some designed task.

Power supply provides the steady source of energy, the driver modulates that for the load.
