I was more thinking about the idle signals, are a bunch signalled in that case? I can keep my custom code to detect it as the user does not need to be bothered with a break after the system has hibernated for a while. So if the lib can detect it, awesome. If not, fine ;-)

Misses the int param probably.

Yep. I'm sure this lib can be used for Charm and for KTimeTracker too, so a welcome addition to KDE!
