(old name: SystemInfo.MacGlobalIdleTime)
Returns value or error.
DescriptionReturns the global idle time in seconds.
This time comes from HID system and informs you how long no mouse or keyboard has been used.
You can check this regularly in a timer script and do things like an auto logout.
If you use EventMonitor.Install function, this function may be better with remote control.
With remote controlled PC, the local mouse and keyboard devices are not used, so the HID idle time is high. But with event monitor we see events from user and can reset idle counter.
