What is Idle?

Idle is when the computer is on, but it is not in use at that time. For example, were you using the computer, then stopped for a period (you made no key depressions or the like), your computer then becomes idle. Just consider it as if it were a car; if you start your car and leave it in park, then your car is idle (its on but not in use). Were u to put your car in drive, it would no longer b idle (the same can be said with a computer if u make a key depression). Hope this helps. == idle== lazy ===

When any car idles, it lowers the ignition energy (but not completely) to keep the car running. When it is cold outside, your Subaru's ignition energy is lost through heat because electricity also is measured through heat. When there is less ignition energy when it is already running on a lower ignition level, the car (your Subaru) is not likely to idle.
