What KIND of VB.Net application are we talking about here...the approach required for different platforms will be very different!  Console, WinForms, WebForms, WPF, etc...

Is there only one form, many forms?...

Are you dealing with both mouse and keyboard input?...

So many unanswered questions...

Mike,

The program in question is a muti form, Windows base vb.net app, that is event driven both by mouse and user input.  Googling the web for
answers, I found code that is confusing.  I am new to vb.net and have inherited this application and its due date for completion that is just days
away. I came to this forum, because of the many experts that have years of expertise in vb.net and perhaps have already created functions for
detecting user inactivity.  The closest examples I have found, place this functions in the main function, and wait for the event of inactivity.
