    require('winapi').getIdleTime()

    Return the time the system has been idle (since last user interaction - e.g. mouse, keyboard & stuffs, see GetLastInputInfo) This is really usefull if you want to create a screensaver/like in nodejs / node-webkit.

    var winapi = require('winapi');
    
    console.log("System is idle since %s", winapi.getIdleTime() );
    
    

    require('winapi').CreateJobGroup()

    Create a job group with current process and all future child_process. Use this to kill zombies. Like Rick.

    var winapi = require('winapi');
    
    winapi.CreateJobGroup();
    
    //you can now spawn subprocess and they'll be killed once you died, windows will clean everything up
    
    
    • (checkout my dispatcher project for inspiration)

    setTimeout(function(){
      //do not move, it wont change !
      console.log("Last input time is %s", winapi.GetLastInputInfo() );
    }, 1000);
