The Idle trigger (v8+) lets you execute a macro while you are logged in after the Mac has been idle (no user action like typing or trackpad or mouse) for a specified amount of time.

You can configure the period in minutes, and the trigger can then optionally fire every minute thereafter if the Mac remains idle.

⚠️ Note that most User Interface (UI) actions (such as typing or selecting a menu) will not function if the screen is screen saving, screen locked, or asleep, and no macros will operate if the Mac itself is asleep.

The %TriggerValue% token will hold the number of minutes the Mac has been idle.
