This is very easy to add to your website or blog with in few seconds.

Login to your Blogger dashboard --> Design --> Edit HTML.

You don't need to click on "Expand Widget Templates".

Scroll down to where you see the </head> tag of your template.

<script language='javascript' src='' type='text/javascript'/>

This standby engine uses the jQuery Javascript library, so if you are using other Javascript libraries or code, add below code instead of above code :

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

... which will set the time of inactivity to 2 minutes (120 seconds).

This can be configured to display in any of the supported languages, if you add ?lang=code, where code is one of the language short codes below.
