Auto Close Idle helps you monitor and
safely close unattended applications after a certain idle time, or at
any time by a click of a button remotely. It's designed to work with
Client/Server database or accounting applications and monitor its use. It allows
you to view who haven't been using the software for a long time and close it
when necessary, either after an idle time limit, or whenever you want. This
ultimately allows you to save on concurrent user's licenses and making sure that
everyone can log in when needed, not to mention that this reduces the chances of
Telling users to close the application when they don't need it doesn't work
in practice. Employees can leave their desks for variety of reasons. A simple
trip to make coffee can be interrupted by a cell phone call or a meeting with
clients which could take hours. They can also be met with their supervisor when
they are away from their desks, and given tasks or field trips to do. The last
thing in their minds is to waste a trip to their desks to close an
Auto Close Idle closes the monitored application by simulating a click on the
close button at the top right of the application's main window. Auto Close Idle
will not end, terminate, or "kill" the task; an activity which leads to data
loss or corruption.
If there are any validation dialogs present, you can use Auto Close Idle
built-in remote control functionality to see the user's screen and
interact with the application remotely; so you can respond to any validation
dialogs and close the application safely.
Since users can run a task in the database application that could take 20 or
30 minutes and leave their desk, it may not be wise to close the application
while it's busy doing something. In NT clients, Auto Close Idle waits for the CPU to be idle
for 30 seconds before attempting to close the application when it's in "Auto
Close" mode, when the administrator tries to close the application manually, a
warning message appears.
Auto Close Idle shows you the list of users and their corresponding idle
times. When you sort by the idle time, the most idle user would appear at the
top of the list, once that user start using the database or accounting software,
that user will drop to the bottom of the list. This makes it easy to see who is
the most idle user quickly and decide what action to take.
Users who cannot log in; can right-click on an icon on the task bar and
notify the administrator that they cannot log in, this allows the administrator
to check who is not using the software and close idle applications as necessary.
When the administrator is not available, the administrator can enable other users to close the most
idle user directly. In this case, when enabled, a user can right click the icon
on the task bar and selects "Close most idle user". This would close the most
idle user automatically without the administrator's intervention. This relieves
the administrator to other duties while insuring that users needs are met...
