@TheRepoClub I assumed that's why it was deleted, but there's no better alternative, so I recreated the package. Also, I tested that command option, and it works fine for me. You could try using caffeine-ng, which can pause xidlehook explicitly or automatically when audio is playing and other scenarios.

By the way this package was removed from the AUR as the dev has sadly passed away that is why it is no longer unmaintained also half the time it fails when it comes to using the not locking if sound is detected.

@Attius_Sullivan I think the package is stable as is. These forks seem to contain fixes for specific use cases, so I'll avoid changing the upstream unless a more active fork shows up.

Just wanted to note that the current upstream is unmaintained (see https://github.com/jD91mZM2/xidlehook/issues/72). Currently there are some forks on github from which, as far as I saw, only https://github.com/jD91mZM2/xidlehook/compare/master...RealSaltyFish:xidlehook:master has a note about maintenance in the README.md (but "Perhaps I will spend some of my free time looking into this project, perhaps not" sounds pretty vague). Regarding the features/commits (but maybe this also is just merging old PRs), https://github.com/jD91mZM2/xidlehook/compare/master...Widowan:xidlehook:master looks promising.
