How to Automatically Reset Database to Initial State After Timed Interval of No Use?

I've created a database that is going to run in kiosk mode for non-admin accounts and I have a script that runs when the file is opened that finds specified records, sorts them, goes to a specified layout, etc. Is there a function or script available that would let me run that same script after a predetermined period of inactivity, for example, the database would reset to its initial state (essentially run the open file script I created) if there have not been any keystrokes or clicks in the last 5 minutes?


I've looked at the Install OnTimer script -- and do use it elsewhere in the database to set some variables and move from one screen to another after a set amount of time -- but I don't know if that is the right way to do it.


Any thoughts or hints would be appreciated.
