Subject: [PATCH] Prevent XSync Alarms from senslessly calling CheckTrigger() when inactive.

If an XSync Alarm is set to inactive there is no need to check if a trigger
needs to fire. Doing so if the counter is the IdleCounter will put the
server on 100 percent CPU load since the select timeout is set to 0.
