    Hi mates, I would like to kill a program when mouse is inactive for some time, this will help me avoid to leave a PC with high CPU load if not necessary (they forgot the program opened).
    How can I do it? Thank you a lot

    Does not opening Task Manager and selecting the process or application and ending it not work for you?

    I remember using a chrome extension called Clockify back in the days.. it notified me if the laptop is idle for more than 10 minutes (you can set whatever time you want). I think that might just remind you to close the program... but i dont think there's something that can kill a program automatically for you when mouse is inactive. You can check some of the tools related to mouse activity online using Click Test. That might help!

    There are some good suggestions there. Hopefully the OP tried them out.
