MMScript_CreateIdleScriptEvent

NameMMScript_CreateIdleScriptEvent
Description

Use this function to create a Script Event that occurs after the user has been idle for a specific amount of time. A Repeating Idle Script Event will only occur once per idle state. In other words, say you have a Script Event set to occur when the user is idle for 30 seconds, and a user went idle at 10:01:00. Your Idle Script would be called at 10:01:30 but would not be called at 10:02:00 or 10:02:30, etc. Only after the user became active again and then idle again for 30 seconds would your Idle Script be called again.
