Yes, I know that. I've just grown a little tired of having to do to things for one action.

comment Writing a Bash script to run and end at specific times
If your OS has something like a cron daemon. Have cron start your script at what ever interval you please and also have cron kill all running instances of your program at a slighly shifted interval.

comment how to detect what DISPLAY is active/has input focus?
I don't think such solutions exist, because there is no such thing as "input focus". Quite the contrary is the case. Multiseat setups seem very common for e.g. kiosk systems. Such decisions would always be heuristical approaches with a bunch of sources for errors. For instance, in your comment you talk about "the hardware keyboard", implying there is only one and it is read from by an X-Server. Both are assumptions that needn't be true. Then there are things like Xephyr and Xnest, which stack X-Servers into one another.
