That would do the opposite of what he will run stuff when the PC is idle rather than when the pc comes out of an idle state.

You're right... I mis-read... ignore me!


Do you use a screensaver? One possibility is to use the parameter sent by Windows to the default screensaver and run a program when that happens (i.e. that occurs when the computer goes idle, and when it comes out of idle state).  Thats easy enough to do, but you would sacrifice having a different screensaver...?
