    There are two commands you can use.
    /, (IDL) Idle Timer
    /, Seconds
    IDL,XXX

    The above defines the number of seconds in "IDLE" state (no mouse/keyboard actions) to
    execute the "IDLE" event that can be defined in ExecTBL.INI so a command is executed at such time.

    /, (TMR) Timer event
    /, Seconds
    TMR,XXX

    The above defines the number of seconds after loading the screen RR will wait to
    execute the "TIMER" event that can be defined in ExecTBL.INI so a command is executed at such time.
    This event is re-occurring, so every few XXX seconds it will re-execute the TIMER event. You can use
    a simple variable switch to prevent it from executing your command more than once (if desired).

    Put this in the name.skin file you want to have timed.
    IDL,5
    and put this in exectbl.ini
    "IDLE","EXIT"
    Now, when there is no movement of the mouse for 5 sec. the screen will be closed.

        Am i dumb or something? why wont it work for me?

        ExecTBL.ini i added this line:

        "IDLE","EXIT"

        and in my skin files:

        /, (IDL) Idle Timer
        /, Seconds
        IDL,5

        it does exit but exits on 5 seconds from opening that skin even if not idle, so i can be click and moving my mouse and it still exits.
