Is there a way to automatically exit the TB application (under Win 7) after a certain period of inactivity?

That means if I click for e.g. 30 minutes not on a menu or message TB should automatically be closed.

Hi,
After a quick Google, it seems that there are a number of ways to auto close a program.

Someone may know of a free program or 3.

Sorry LIMPET235

I did a Google search and I did NOT found any AddOn to let me auto-close full Thunderbird.

So what matches did you found?

Hi,
I did not specifically ask/search for Thunderbird, just a general auto close any program.

You might like to try at the WIN 7 Fora, as they know just about everything over there, especially "BRINK.".

Good hunting.

In other words, it's not a Thunderbird extension that you want but an operating system utility.

Moving this to the Tech. forum.....as it's not really related "exclusively" to Thunderbird.
