Re: Best way to schedule periodic reminder?

I would do this:
  Timer saveTimer = new Timer() {
    public void run() {
      // show the popup
  public void onWorkSaved() {
    saveTimer.schedule(3600 * 1000);

  public void onFinishedEditing() {

I would like to create a popup every hour that reminds the user to save his work (of course only if the work has not been saved for 1 h).
What is the right way to do this?


and on save: timer.cancel()?

Probably it works this way, but would this consume decent resources if there is always a timer running in background? Or doesn't this matter.
