SysInfo Idle_Time no longer working - not sure as to why.

Post by CodeCode »

Hello, I have an Idle_Time skin that I haven't used in a while.

After several updates to Win10 and also to Rainmeter since last use, there seems to be a bug now.

Code: Select all

[MeasureIdle]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=SysInfo
SysInfoType=IDLE_TIME
IfCondition=MeasureIdle > 59
IfTrueAction=[!SetOption FormatTime Format "%2!i!:%1!02i!"]
IfFalseAction=[!SetOption FormatTime Format "%1!i!"]
IfCondition2=(MeasureIdle >= 1101)
IfTrueAction2=[!SetOption MeterUsedTime LineColor "255,0,0"][!Redraw *][!UpdateMeter "MeterUsedTime"]
IfCondition3=((MeasureIdle >= 901) && (MeasureIdle < 1100))
IfTrueAction3=[!SetOption MeterUsedTime LineColor "255,175,0"][!Redraw *][!UpdateMeter "MeterUsedTime"]
IfCondition4=(MeasureIdle < 900)
IfTrueAction4=[!SetOption MeterUsedTime LineColor "55,106,129"][!Redraw *][!UpdateMeter "MeterUsedTime"]
MinValue=0
MaxValue=1199

[MeasureIdleb]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=SysInfo
InvertMeasure=1
SysInfoType=IDLE_TIME
MinValue=0
MaxValue=1199

[FormatTime]
Measure=Uptime
SecondsValue=[MeasureIdle]
DynamicVariables=1

[MeterUsedTime]
Meter=Roundline
MeasureName=MeasureIdle
X=99
Y=99
StartAngle=-1.5458897
RotationAngle=6.188
LineStart=43
LineLength=49
Solid=1
AntiAlias=1

[MeterFreeTime]
Meter=Roundline
MeasureName=MeasureIdleb
X=99
Y=99
StartAngle=4.694
RotationAngle=-6.188
LineStart=43
LineLength=49
LineColor=105,100,90,225
Solid=1
AntiAlias=1

[MeterText]
Meter=String
Fontsize=14
FontFace=Calibri
FontColor=220,220,220
AntiAlias=1 
StringAlign=Center
x=99
y=78
Text=IDLE TIME
LeftMouseDownAction=["Shell:::{025A5937-A6BE-4686-A844-36FE4BEC8B6D}]
DynamicVariables=1

[MeterIdleTime]
Meter=String
MeasureName=FormatTime
Fontsize=15
FontFace=Calibri
FontColor=220,220,220
AntiAlias=1 
StringAlign=Center
x=99
y=20r
Text=%1
LeftMouseDownAction=["Shell:::{025A5937-A6BE-4686-A844-36FE4BEC8B6D}]
DynamicVariables=1
Nothing seems to be getting any response - as in the text and roundlines are not progressing when the mouse or keyboard are idle for any amount of time.

Any hep is welcome.
Can't fix it if it ain't broke - unless it is in code.

Weird.

It just isnt working for me.

Ill try tearing it down to the most basic, just in case.

However I wonder if anything else could be giving a false positive?

I have a full boat of skins; music player, MSI skins, Coretemp skins, calendar and meeting list based on google calendar, weather, several on update=-1, drives, eM client mail, razer, custom UI in windows - uses uxthemepatcher, hmm maybe more. Any possible culprits?

No idea, but I'd be suspicious that something you are running is causing Windows to see activity with either the mouse or the keyboard.

OK not sure if this is why:
Rainmeter 4.4.0.3433 beta (64-bit)
Language: English (1033)
Build time: 2021-02-11 20:36:28
Windows 8 Pro 2009 64-bit (build 9200) - English (1033)
Path: C:\Program Files\Rainmeter\
SkinPath: C:\Users\eddel\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\
SettingsPath: C:\Users\eddel\AppData\Roaming\Rainmeter\
IniFile: C:\Users\eddel\AppData\Roaming\Rainmeter\Rainmeter.ini

I have Win10Pro:

Could be the uxthemepatcher, but it doesnt have an off switch, and uninstalling is not worth the possible outcome of an idle timer that is just for show anyway.

Yep this is just a misnomer. I had rainmeter set to run in compatability mode for Win8 which was a byproduct of changing the shortcut to be start RM with Admin rights. My specs now show Win10Pro:
