Auto Close a process if idle

Recommended Posts


Hi All,


Hoping someone can help with this.

I found a script that closes an app based on its name in the applications tab in task manager:

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 3) ;3 = exact title match
Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1)

$S_running = "check-4-app" ;name the script
If WinExists($S_running) Then Exit

$title = "KCML Client"
$count = 0
While 1
    $state = WinGetState($title)
    $count += 1

    If $state = 15 or $state = 0 Then $count = 0

    If $count > 6 Then WinClose($title)

   ToolTip("count = " & $count, 0, 0, "state = " & $state)

The problem is the name changes when a user navigates to a different screen in the app. 

I have tried to modify it so that it looks at the process. The problem i then had was the count stayed at -1 and would kill the program straight away.


Can anyone help?


Thanks in advance
