What should I do with ‘Timer is running longer than 12 hours’ alert?

Do you often forget to stop the timer when leaving your work? Don't worry, the next time you return to work, TMetric will remind you to do that. A long-running timer window will appear if a time entry is continually active for more than 12 hours. This is what TMetric web app will show if you left your work without stopping the timer and shutting off your computer.
