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?

Try something like this instead:

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8" />
<title>http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/JavaScript/Q_26873652.html</title>
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.4/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

$( function() {

  $(document).hover( eventHover );

});

function eventHover( event ) {
  $("#debug").append( $("<div/>").text( JSON.stringify(event) ) );
}

</script>
</head>
<body>

<div id="debug">
</div> 

</body>
</html>

Open in new window

I can't seem to get hover to work with document, window or even 'body'.  Works with all other elements.

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
    console.log('starting test...');
    $(window).hover(function(e) {
        console.log('in:'+e.target);
    }, function(e) {
        console.log('out:'+e.target);
    });
});
</script>
