No AFK detection? Thats bad. Workrave can to that.


"monitor system idle times for natural breaks" is a setting that's on by default on page 3 of the settings window.

Nice, thank you! Downloading...

I don't know how well it's working, it has still been ordering me to take breaks when not using the computer, but it hasn't really bothered me. It might be a question of how long you've been inactive, not sure how it works.

One thing I wish I could however, is customising the messages I get. Maybe I should add that to my review.. But overall I'm very happy with this software, it works for me, and I can recommend it :)
