Use a timer with, say 30 sec's. Retrigger it on each Application.OnIdle Event (nothing has been done since then) - but only if no timer message arrived - Call Application.terminate after the timer raised 5 times...

An other solution would be to trap all mouse/keyboard messages with an Application.OnMessage Handler and retrigger a timeout with that.
