Sentry can tell people why you are gone or where you went. With this feature turned on, Sentry will prompt you for an away message each time the computer is locked down. You can enter up to 10 pre-defined away messages to use.
When Sentry starts because your computer has been idle, Sentry will recognize this and not prompt you for a message (because you're probably already gone!)
If someone walks by your workstation while Sentry is running, they can leave a private message for you to read when you return. The message will show up in Sentry's message panel, and after Sentry ends you can browse any messages left for you. Again, Sentry lets you customize the message behavior with colors, fonts, styles, and more.
Have complete control over the colors and fonts within Sentry. Give it your own look!
