How do you determine idle time by application?

Hi all you experts,

I need to determine the idle time of my application in order to re-prompt the user for a login...
That being said I found a good way to test for system idle time using GetLastInputInfo  API.
I am sure there is a way to also add the handle to the application so I am only tracking my applications idle time?

Any help is greatly appreciated. We are currently coding this in VB 6.0...
