Detecting user inactivity

Recommended Posts

RooperGee

I have an autoit script that sends messages to users on our local network. I would like to detect if the user is likely at their computer or not based on mouse and keyboard activity. I can easily compare mouse position over time to sense if they are "working". However, how do I detect if the user is typing away at some program and not touching their mouse at all? I don't really want to use _IsPressed or regular keyboard hooks. Is there an easy way to detect if any key has been pressed or alternatively, is there a way to poll Windows' method of detecting user inactivity that starts the screen saver?
