sleepworker is a UNIX daemon which observes your UNIX machine for idle time. With the help of this daemon you can execute commands or programs during idle time.
sleepworker is Free Software and released under the GNU GPL version 2.
The motivation for the program sleepworker is based on the characteristics of programs like sleepd, idler, xautolock and other programs, which poll mouse or keyboard events and interrupts. All those programs contain bugs or include testing components, which are not relevant for my intention. Regarding this facts, I decided to write an lightweight eventwatcher - the so-called sleepworker.
