Description

As recommended at [[http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/ACPI_Wakeup]], it would be helpful for the idle.sh script to also check for logins. I made the necessary modifications to idle.sh (attached) and also added a check for common windows (xterm and Firefox) as examples for individuals to tailor.

An additional script (xwin_find.sh, attached) is required to locate the windows.

These changes allow the machine to prevent shutdown if the user is actively using the machine outside of MythTV. Are there any maintenance activities that depend on idle.sh which might be prevented from running? I checked mythbackup and it's fine.
