Re: Check Idle State of the device

Something like this?


     * Determine if device is idle. We define this as "inactive for 30 seconds"
     * This is used to avoid any background processing that would noticeably
     * slow the unit down. If the device is idle, we probably won't disturb the user.
     * @return true if idle
    public synchronized boolean deviceIdle()
        if (DeviceInfo.getIdleTime() > 30L)
            return true;
            return false;
