Timeout for Strafe Keyboard in CUE?

I bought a Strafe for both myself (RGB) and my son (Standard) and we both love them. However, is there a way to get the keyboard to turn off when the computer is idle. I'm not seeing anything in CUE to enable this type of timer.

 

I attempted the Idlekey 1.2 program but it doesn't work for me. When I have it enabled and active in CUE my computer screensaver won't turn on and my computer never sleeps. Something in the program is keeping my computer awake and in addition the keyboard also never turns off. I haven't sat and watched it to see if it changes profiles and then gets stopped.

 

Really the best solution would be if CUE had a timer for the keyboard.

 

I certainly can turn the lights off using CUE every time I leave the desk, but that is a hassle and I will forget at times. My 11 year old will forget frequently.

You can create a timer action that is reset on key activity, and switches to your idle profile on timer expiration, retaining original key output, binding this to frequently used keys, such as Enter. In your idle profile, define each key to retain original key input and switch to your default profile.
