question regarding how it is determined if somebody is online or just idle (logged in but inactive)

i have a question regarding how it is determined if a user is online. the problem is that if somebody is just logged in but not active (e.g. not physically sitting at the computer, but the site is still open in a browser window) the user is shown as online. that's a little confusion for some users and i was wondering if it was possible to measure when the last link was clicked and use that as an indicator?

that would make more sense to me.
