Program that forces you to take a Screen break / Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) program

I'm looking for a program that will force me to take a break from my computer every X amount of minutes.

It must be able to force me to take a break, not that I can just close the reminder and continue working.

An added bonus, would be a program that can detect if teamviewer/logmein are running so that it won't force me to take a break whilst I'm doing remote sessions.

Any suggestions appreciated!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Great program but doesnt have a help guide to explain all the settings.
Would also like to see a feature where it doesnt lock the computer whilst I'm doing remote sessions.

Thanks for the recommendation!

But you can ask on project's page.
Since workrave is tailored to satisfy legal requirements, I dont think they will support you in harming yourself.

It would still be nice to have a little help page explaining each option, rather than having to ask about each one.

Agreed re second point.
