Is there a script that checks for mouse movement and keystrokes being pressed?

I've been searching old posts for about 2 hours now and cannot find a script that works successfully with key strokes and mouse movement.

I want it to check for mouse movement or keystrokes in an if statement, so that the function will only run when it does not have mouse movement or keystrokes for 5 seconds or more ... anyone?

if ProcessExists('scguiw32.exe') <> 1 Then
        
                While 1;Infinite Loop

                    
                  $MPos1 = MouseGetPos()
                    MsgBox(0, "1Mouse x,y:", $mpos1[0] & "," & $mpos1[1])
                    Sleep(3000)
                  $MPos2 = MouseGetPos()
                    MsgBox(0, "2Mouse x,y:", $mpos2[0] & "," & $mpos2[1])
                
                  if $MPos1 == $MPos2 then
                MsgBox(0, 'timer window', 'move your mouse')

                                 elseif
                                    caprskeepalive()

                    EndIf
                WEnd

You will need to use:

Timers.au3 UDF

_Timer_Init and _Timer_Diff to capture the time between mouse move or keystroke

MouseGetPos to see if the mouse has moved

Not sure how to propperly check if a keystroke has occured....

Continue reading to Melba23's post. He has a better way ^_^
