Overview

The Code42 app adjusts settings, such as CPU and bandwidth usage, based on if a user is using the device or if a user is away from the device. This article explains how the Code42 app detects when a user is present or away and explains dependencies for this detection, so you can ensure that the Code42 app is using the correct settings.

Detect status

The method to detect away/present status depends on your operating system and your version of the Code42 app, as described below.

In Windows, the Code42 app relies on mouse and keyboard activity to determine if you are using your device. It may take up to 30 seconds to detect a change in status.

Mac

The Code42 app for Mac relies on mouse and keyboard activity to determine if you are using your device.

Linux
