As far as I know, VTK doesn't have an idle event or a timer event that
happens every so often whether or not you are interacting with the
window.  While there are vtkCommand::TimerEvent's, I don't think these
are issued when the window is idling.

GTK provides timer and idle event loops.  Perhaps the GUI system you
are using does as well?
