User Idle Detection

The Idle Detection API gives developers the ability to be notified when users go idle (e.g. they don’t interact with the keyboard/mouse/screen, when a screensaver kicks in and/or when the screen gets locked) past a certain threshold or beyond their content area (e.g. when users move to a different window/tab).
