Idle tracker not running

(imported topic written by chuckl91)

When I turn on Idle Tracking, is there anything that would cause the BFIdleTracker.exe to stop running? I’ve noticed that when I check the Idle Tracking Analysis there always seems to be a few more workstations that don’t have it running. Granted, this could be just machines that are powering on for the first time but I want to make sure that some event (like a reboot or log off) doesn’t shut this down.

Hey Chuck,

The idle tracker will stop running when a user logs off, or when the machine is rebooted. However by default the action is set as a policy action, so it should automatically reapply when the machine or user comes back on. You may want to check your actions re-apply behavior to make sure this is working as you would expect it to.
