Window MouseLeave

I'm trying to detect when the mouse leaves the window with jQuery 1.5.1.

The code below fires an event every time I mouse over an element on the page but even when I move the mouse out of the window the e.target is never the window object.  So it fires at all the wrong times and never at the right time.

    $(window).bind("mouseleave", function(e) {
        console.log(e.target);
    });


What am I doing wrong?
