I'm writing an application at the moment - an alert system for the company website, in the form of a popup window that sits in the background, updating every few seconds and tells the user if a new alert is generated. What I would like to do is somehow detect when the user locks their screen or the screensaver appears (idle timeout of 20 minutes).
Basically alerts would appear in this popup window, but if the users locks their screen or the screensaver appears, we want to re-route alerts to email instead, as staff have Windows Mobile devices.
We're using Windows XP SP3 site-wide and IE7 only.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
