I am having a frequent problem where PT enters Unattended mode because I've turned away from my monitor (while still working on the same project), and I don't see the warning message. Then, apparently, I lose all the accumulated time for the active document, not just the time since there was no keyboard or mouse activity.
It would be very helpful if you could provide one of the following 3 solutions:
1) Add a warning _sound_ when Project Tracker is about to enter unattended mode,
2) Have PT automatically save accumulated time at intervals,
3) Have PT save all of the time on the current document _except_ the unattended interval when entering unattended mode, rather than losing the entire accumulated time.
I have frequently lost an hour or more of work because PT entered Unattended mode when I was working nearby. I am usually not even aware of this problem until I return to the computer and see the "returning to attended mode" message.
I don't want to disable unattended mode -- it's a nice feature -- just have a better warning, or preferably, an automatic save for accumulated, attended time before entering Unattended Mode.
Thanks for considering these fixes!
