Hi,

I made an offline presentation for a company, with extensive use of flash. One of the things I made was a screensaver, wich simply loaded a page in the browser when the user didn't move the mouse for 10 minutes. I coded it in flash, was pretty easy.

Now I'm converting the whole thing to pure html/javascript only version, but I need to get that screensaver working. Is it possible to keep track of mouse movement and time with javascript, so I can load a html page after 10 minutes of inactivity?

I can't use the windows screensaver, because when the screensaver stops, I need to make sure the intro page is loaded again and not the same page that was active when the screensaver started.

Any help or hints would be appreciated!

Thanks,

wouter
