Cute... but what does it actually DO? It's either on or off. There is no middle state. There is no variation in the on-ness or off-ness. There is no indication as to how much processor activity counts as busy and how little counts as idle. What does an Off LED indicate? Move on with life.

Very nice app! Do I need to know when I am using mouse or keyboard? Not at all, but it's funny anyhow!

Ok, next release will be named IdleLED. The app does nothing, so N/A. It's ok. Thank you very much for the feedback.

As the name suggests, the led is RED when you're using your mac and is off when it is IDLE (that is, you're not using mouse/keyboard). Lovely useless ;-)

As the name suggests, it signals idle status. When your Mac is in idle (e.g., no input from users) the LED is OFF. When you are doing something with your Mac the LED is ON. The word LED is ok, but IdleLed is the own name on the App... so the stuff LED and led doesn't matter. In the docs I think that the word LED has been correctly spelled (i hope).

Yes, I'm clear on what the name suggests... but what does it MEAN? What qualifies as IDLE vs. NOT IDLE? That the user is not actively doing anything in a foreground process that calls the processor? Without definition, I still think this is utterly useless and the posted answers don't answer a thing.

And by the way: why stability is 2? I think it is quite stable (being very simple).

Stability is 2 because "N/A" is not available and I can't give anything about this useless little thing a positive rating. Stability is actually impossible to evaluate, given that the product does almost nothing.
