I do contract drafting for millwork and find the timestamp very useful in keeping track of my estimates.
My wish would be having a pause function to stop the clock and possibly having it re-start with the first mouse movement.

There's so much to learn and not much time left to learn it.

This has been discussed and many of us (myself included) agree with you.  Personally, I would like the 'pause' function to be automatic (when the TurboCAD window is not active; when there have been no changes since the last AutoSave; when the system Screen Blanker is active, etc.).

As it is, you can 'pause' the clock by saving and closing the file.

I like your idea, it sounds even easier.
