The code, in stripped down form:
idle end run
on idle tell application "FileMaker Pro Advanced" -- or other version of FMP
do script "script name" endtell return 5 * minutes -- time between script executions end idle
The above should be saved as a stay-open application, then launched. Note that idle handler timing is approximate, so don’t count on an exact five minute interval.
