Like the title suggests.

It would be nice to have a setting for this if there's no such way to do so?

Do you mean computer inactivity or not using stickies for some time ? The first is easy it is only a few lines of code.

But how are you going to unhide the stickies ?

I use AHK for easy scripts , it is just a text file with the commands like a bat file:

The 2nd option.

I have them set to be hidden on start up of the pc.

It would be nice to hide the stickies after a few minutes again if the app hasn't been used in that time.

I unhide them by clicking on the system tray icon.

It is not so easy unless you set a condition like if a sticky has not been active window for a certain time but it can be frustrating if you have info on a sticky you need but it is not the active window ( if you work in another application ) ......

I used to have a hotkey for hide/show ( Pause key ) that works fine but needs user " intervention "  Neutral
