When using the keyboard, with or without JAWS, there is a time out which happens. I am sure this is tied to not moving the mouse in a certain length of time. Do any of you know what WCAG2.0 criteria this is breaking?

Perhaps this one: SC 2.2.1


But the idea that there is only a timer for non-mousers sounds more
like an unintended bug rather than a feature.
