Accidental shutdown with two users

Hi

I set a condition that if an user is inactive for 3 hours, poweroff pc

This is the problem:

User A login
User A normally shutdown PC

User B PowerON pc and, cause fastboot, Windows offers the login screen where you can enter your credentials and in the meantime preloads the desktop, where Shutter already starts (last user A session).

User B will use his credentials, and then Windows will load a new session, leaving user A in the background even though he is not in use. Due to this while user B is working, the computer will shut down due to user A being inactive.
How can I avoid this?

Thanks

Re: Accidental shutdown with two users

At the moment there is no built-in way to avoid this issue.

We are working on adding an option to handle such cases, possibly via an extra option or a dedicated event.

In the meantime, one could use the Program Output event with some external tool or a batch script that would trigger the event only if there is exactly one logged in user.
