is an ActiveX control which lets you to take actions after a specified
system-wide (related to the whole system) idle time or to check
the time interval of user inactivity. It peeks at all user events
for all applications, and cannot be limited to just your program.
It may be used to automatically call a routine to log off the user
and exit the application if there has been no activity for 30 minutes.
It is intended to shut down your critical application if the user
has gone to lunch or home, and left the application running. Any
user activity, such as keyboard, mouse, or mouse-wheel in any application
program will be considered user activity and will reset the inactivity
System Idle time is the time interval of full user
inactivity. In this interval any user action is missing on the computer,
like pressing a key of the keyboard or moving the mouse or pressing
a mouse button or rotating the scroll.
The demo version is fully functional, but it displays a nag dialog
(the licensed version will, of course, not have a nag dialog). The
package includes demo programs and a help file with the description
of the control.
