Chrome- Return to homepage after inactivity

7 posts in this topic

Forgive my noobness!

I'm not experienced in this, and I'm looking for pointers on how to write a script that moniters keyboard and mouse inactivity and returns to a full screen homepage after a preset time. The choice of Browser isn't fixed, although Chrome would be ideal.

Can anyone help?

#Include <Timers.au3>
#include <Process.au3>
If _Timer_GetIdleTime() > 10000  Then ;10sec
_RunDos("start Http://sdgsdfgslkdfj")
EndIf

So is there a way to set the current page?

Also, if it is on the current page it will remain that way and not try to open another?

There is no API (from what I'm aware of) to control Chrome directly. Try using a mix of ControlSetText or ControlCommand.

Not the best way to go about this.

I have written such a beast for IE.

It's fully configurable using an INI file (time the computer has to be idle, time between idle time checks, homepage to return to, logging, time when the PC will be rebooted/shut down, some other processes you want to be killed after idle time ..)

Unfortunately all comments and variable names are in german. If you would like me to change it to english it takes at least 2 weeks because I'm on vacation starting tomorrow.
