as above. i need a 3rd party app that helps me track idle time (i.e. no mouse clicks/keyboard), so that i can know the optimum amount of time to set the computer to sleep thereafter.

suggestions please? couldn't find anything on the net.

Only one I found quickly that was free. http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/Idle-Monitor.shtml

Never used it, can't vouch for it. Didn't spend but 2 minutes looking. So there may be more if this one doesn't do what you need.

hmm, doesn't work for me, because it only gets the TOTAL idle time.

i need it to collect data of EACH idle interval, then average it out to get a sense of how long i usually leave my com idle.
