Problem in windows 10 "_Timer_GetIdleTime()"

Recommended Posts

#include <Timers.au3>

While 1
Local $iIdleTime = _Timer_GetIdleTime()
ConsoleWrite($iIdleTime &' - '&@MSEC&@CRLF)
Sleep(150)
WEnd

Hi all, This used to work well in Win7, now in Win10 it auto resets constantly without any input, any ideas?

I tried it on my computer and the results:

I see, here's what happens here:

So what do you suggest?

Results from the test showed script runs very good.

If I do not move the mouse or press any key (inactive)
it will start counting IdleTime.

If any activity, IdleTime will be reset.
And will continue counting when the computer inactive!

;#include <Timers.au3>

While 1
    Local $iIdleTime = _Timer_GetIdleTime()
    ConsoleWrite($iIdleTime & ' - ' & @MSEC & @CRLF)
    Sleep(150)

    ; Get current ticks since last restart
    Local $avTicks = DllCall("kernel32.dll", "dword", "GetTickCount")
    If @error Or Not $aResult[0] Then Return SetError(@error, @extended, 0)

    ; Return time since last activity, in ticks (approx milliseconds)
    Local $iDiff = $avTicks[0] - DllStructGetData($tStruct, 2)
    If $iDiff < 0 Then Return SetExtended(1, $avTicks[0]) ; Rollover of ticks counter has occured
    ; Normal return
    Return $iDiff
EndFunc   ;==>_Timer_GetIdleTime

@careca,

first, redeclaring Local inside a loop hurts my very few left brain cells. please stop it.

now, even if you do not touch your mouse or keyboard, something else obviously does - but it does not have to be human. i once noticed that same issue with an nVidia driver which needed to be updated, and in another occasion i overheard that a laptop touchpad driver was to blame.

i just searched my mail, but i can't seem to find the related info. if i do, perhaps i can get some more details for you. meanwhile, follow a standard troubleshooting procedure: test in safe mode, if that works then start disabling drivers, services, apps and stuff, until you find the culprit.

also: is it a physical or virtual machine running Windows 10?

Hi, i never redeclare inside a loop, it's just that i copy-pasted from the example and then put a loop around it, don't worry, i never do it unless for these test examples.

Ok, i'll test safe mode.

It's a physical machine, without touchpad, meaning desktop, but does the same in my laptop...

Well, it doesn't here, as i said before, and i understand how it works, just need to find what is reseting it. ;)

... it's just that i copy-pasted from the example ...

as my professor used to say, "even copying is something one must know how to do correctly" ;)

now, assuming GetLastInputInfo or GetTickCount are being messed with, and if you want a reliable functionality over multiple systems, perhaps a different approach is in order - depending on your actual purpose. if you are comfortable with "idle time" being redefined as "the time since last mouse move" (ignoring keyboard input), then the script hereunder demonstrates how it can be applied:

AdlibRegister('_MouseIdleTime')

HotKeySet('{ESC}', '_Exit')

While True
    ConsoleWrite(_MouseIdleTime() & @CRLF)
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

Func _MouseIdleTime()
    Local Static $hTimer ; a running timer measuring the required idle time
    Local Static $aMousePosOld[2] ; holding the previous mouse position, to be compared to current mouse position
    Local $aMousePosNew = MouseGetPos() ; get current mouse position for comparison
    If $aMousePosOld[0] <> $aMousePosNew[0] Or $aMousePosOld[1] <> $aMousePosNew[1] Then ; mouse has moved
        ; remember new pos
        $aMousePosOld[0] = $aMousePosNew[0]
        $aMousePosOld[1] = $aMousePosNew[1]
        ; zero timer
        $hTimer = TimerInit()
        ; return zero, which indicates a mouse move to the calling script
        Return 0
    Else ; mouse has not moved
        Return TimerDiff($hTimer) ; let the calling script know for how long
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>_MouseIdleTime

important: this script does not consider keyboard input, as well as any other input device which does not simulate a mouse cursor!

Yeah, i was thinking about that, it will work, thanks, it's for a code that turns the monitor off with a hotkey when im going away.

PS: I'll probably add some more lines to that, in order to detect space and enter to wake up.

Thanks everyone!

 

EDIT: So i discovered that DWM.exe or 'Desktop Windows Manager' was the culprit, had to kill explorer first, and as soon as i killed DWM the count started to climb. So now that i know that, do you think there's a way to ignore that process?

isn't that a built-in "Power Options" feature? set it to turn the monitor off after 1 minute and you'll be fine.

DWM by itself is, in all likelihood, innocent. DWM is responsible for integrating Windows (the OS) effect and windows (of programs) graphics to a composite image which is then displayed on screen (here is a pretty decent article about it). you really should investigate further on to which is the app that - when its graphics is processed by DWM - creates the issue.

I want to decide when to shut it off.

If DWM is not the one, how can i find what is?, i literally killed every process and that was the only one that did the trick.

I am seeing the same problem with a BlissBox (USB hub that works with almost all old retro game controllers).

 

As soon as I plug that in, the timer never goes above 16ms, even with no joysticks plugged into it. As soon as I unplug it, the idle timer starts rising.

Not that I expect any help with that from this forum, I just thought it is worth nothing for the future if anyone else have any problem. I've yet to find a solution for it.

#include <Timers.au3>

HotKeySet("+{ESC}", "_Quit")

While 1
   SplashTextOn("Test of idle timer. Shift-Esc to quit.", "This timer should go up if you do not touch anything." & @CRLF & @CRLF & _Timer_GetIdleTime(),-1,100)
   Sleep(1000)
WEnd

Func _Quit()
   SplashOff()
   Exit
EndFunc

Sounds like the hub does this on purpose to prevent the screensaver/sleep from kicking in. It's probably because the controllers aren't seen as keyboard or mouse input so the screensaver might come on if it didn't do that, but that's just a guess.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

To follow up on this...

 

If you are using the release version of Windows 10 (10240?), the _Timer_GetIdleTime() is indeed reset when using a Game Controller. Microsoft considers this a bug, so...

In the big november update (1511), they fixed this so Game Controllers no longer reset the _Timer_GetIdleTime() (And your screensaver goes on if you are only using a game controller...).

 

So the reason for my problems was because the BlissBox was sending out a signal every 16ms. With the release version of Windows 10, this reset the _Timer_GetIdleTime() every 16ms. I've updated to Windows 10 version 1511 and the problem is gone.

 

Of course, now _Timer_GetIdleTime() is pretty useless if you are sitting with a game controller only, but that is not Autoits fault but a design decision from Microsoft.

      My AutoIt script works fine, for the most part, however, if it goes idle for roughly 30 minutes, it will won't be able to send data to a 3rd party application window titled, "Case #". 
      The problem lies within the function "SendFusion", it's able to see the handle for the "WinActivate" and "WinWaitActivate" (I've also tried putting in 10 seconds in the WinWaitActivate as well, doesn't work). However, if we have been idle, it will always fail to send data afterward. On what I've tried so far:
      "Send" function with the data and a {ENTER} i.e. Send($CaseTxt & "{ENTER}"), this won't even hit the enter key  ControlSetText, tried passing the handle from WinActivate, using the title "Case #" that was copied directly from the Autoit Window Info, hard coding the title, Using CLASS:WindowsForms10... always returns a 0 ControlCommand (same as above) always returns a 0 ControlGetFocus always returns a 0 ControlFocus, always returns a 0 Creating a new and simple Au3 script that just sends data to "Case #", also fails NOTE: If I close the Au3 script and just scan the data directly into the "Case #" or even type it, it works fine with no issues. I'm confused as to why it would not work after a long idle period?
      Below are the essential parts of the script, I can provide the entire thing if needed. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

      Window Control (x86) Info, I've tried the CLASS, the ID, also I just noticed that the "handle" in "Control" and "Window" appear to be different as well.

       
      So far the only work-around is to close down the 3rd party application and the AutoIt script, re-open them and it works all completely fine. But this is a pain for the end-user since it's all touch screen and it slows down their workflow, which they can be extremely sensitive about.

      Hello All, 
      If you're interested in the story, read below. Otherwise, just jump to the end of the post. 
      Story: 
      Sometimes my computer goes crazy with Windows update. I tried to turn it off with "services.msc", but couldn't close the it. So, I did some research online that it's triggered by Update Orchestration and Task Scheduler and Windows Update. I also checked that all three processes are triggered by svchost.exe.

      So, I tried to make a script to close this process. I found some useful functions ProcessList and _ProcessGetName using the help documents and coded something as below: 
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Process.au3> Local $aProcessList = ProcessList() For $i = 1 To $aProcessList[0][0] $iPid = $aProcessList[$i][1] $sName = _ProcessGetName($iPid) MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "The process", "PID: " & $iPid & @CRLF & "NAME: " & $sName) If $sName = "svchost.exe" Then ;ProcessClose($iPid) ;I don't know if this is the process I want to close EndIf Next But the problem is; there are so many svchost.exe exists in the process list. I can't close all of them, some of them are essential to run Windows (well, accidentally I terminated some of them and ended up with a blue screen  
      ---------------
      Well, how can I know the process name like "Service Host: Update Orchestration" (not the scvhost)?
      It's not only with the .exe file, just to the name shown in Windows.

      I have this AutoIt script that works on Windows 7. However, when I test it on Windows 10, the objEvent will not execute the function it's supposed to call. So I have a webpage the script will check if it is active, then it will search if a popup button exist (elementId), if so, assign it to the event handler so that when that button is clicked, then handler function will move the focus back to the main GUI again.
      If WinActive("Website Title - Internet Explorer") Then    $ie = _IEAttach("Website Title")    $objElement= _IEGetObjById ($ie, "elementId")    local $oEvent = ObjEvent($objElement, "_MY_EVENT_HANDLER_") EndIf Func _MY_EVENT_HANDLER_onclick($oEvtObj)     msgbox(0,"Alert Window", "Button Clicked!") setMainWindow() ; sets focus back to main GUI EndFunc  
      I've verified, on Windows 10, that it does see the object element. But it will not trigger the event. Could it be related to some timing issues due to Windows 10 Internet Explorer over Windows 7 Internet Explorer? 
      Windows 7 IE version 11.0.9600.19507
      Windows 10 IE version 11.418.18362.0
      AutoIt v 3.3
