Can you clarify what "non responsive" means from a system point of view? What exactly is Kiwi looking for with this condition?

Our app may "seem" non responsive when it hides the mouse cursor during videos/animations. At this point, active clicking-- during the moment at which Kiwi checks to see if the app is responsive --results in the child action being executed (in our case, close app).

It's like pinging a server: Kiwi sends a command to an application GUI to which she responds. If the application does not respond, it either froze or is under heavy processing. So if you include the "above 90% processor load" rule, you can rule the last occasion out.

The official Microsoft text:
"If a process has a user interface, the Responding property contacts the user interface to determine whether the process is responding to user input. If the interface does not respond immediately, the Responding property returns false. Use this property to determine whether the interface of the associated process has stopped responding."

thr whole link:

Hope you find all you need.
