AFK Lobby Timer does not reset when user chats

Issue: AFK Lobby Timer does not reset when user chats
Steps to reproduce:

1. Open AFK Timer and start a Lobby timer
2. Without using mouse at all, use the keyboard to chat in Runescape
3. Note that the AFK Lobby Timer does not reset when typing, and Runescape does not boot you to lobby.

Seems like AFK Lobby Timer should reset on any keystrokes to Runescape window.

Thanks for the great software!

As an addendum, it also seems that just moving the mouse will interrupt Jagex's AFK timer.  I'm not suggesting that the Lobby Timer be edited to reset even on mouse movement, but it'd be nice! :-)

This would require alt1 to start tracking keystrokes in any program, more widely known as key logging. I prefer to stay away from this if there is no strong use case.

The main use case for the lobby timer is tabbing out to a different program and in that case you have to click rs anyway to reset the timer.

Fair enough!  I figured that was a reason this functionality wasn't present, but thought I'd report it anyway!  Thanks again.

P.S. If alt1 reads the screen, could it possibly read the text box for our own character name (that shows up in the chat window)?  Just a thought.
