Examples

set the idleRate to 500 -- one idle message per half second

Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Adjust the idleRate property to change the interval between periodically-sent messages. Increasing the idleRate causes these messages to be sent less frequently, and decreases the amount of CPU time the application uses.

Value:

The idleRate is an integer between zero and 65535.

By default, the idleRate property is set to 200 (one-fifth of a second).

Comments:

The idleRate is the time in milliseconds between one idle message and the next, one mouseStillDown message and the next, and one mouseWithin message and the next.

Important! Some Unix systems cannot reliably time an interval less than 200 milliseconds. Setting a shorter idleRate on those systems may cause idle messages to be sent at erratic times.

This property is very similar to the idleTicks property, and changes when the idleTicks changes. The only difference is that the two properties are given in different time units: the idleRate is in milliseconds and the idleTicks is in ticks.
