Hi,

 

You should wire "want seconds" input of  "Get Date/Time string" with True constant so you get seconds to your time string. It would be even better if you forget about that "Get date/time string" and compare timestamps instead. You should also add a small delay to your loops to avoid using CPU @ 100%. You can achieve this for example using "Wait (ms)" function inside your loops.

 

Hope this helps!

thanks alot for your help. It works by removing both the time on and off the "Get date/time string".
