  • Automatically records "clock in" and "clock out" times
    • Your "clock in" time is recorded the first time you power up or log on to your computer on a given day.
    • Your "clock out" time is recorded the last time you power down or log off of your computer on a given day.
    • If you are using a screen saver, your clock out time will be recorded that last time your screen saver comes on a given day. This is handy for those times when you forget to shutdown or log off of your computer before leaving for the day.
