If you were able to do this, LC might get flagged as malware. Software that attempts to modify the OS or drivers gets the attention of malware protection pretty quickly.

Most productivity tracking software works by effectively inserting code
into where the device drivers meet the operating system, so that mouse
and keyboard events are captured by the productivity app's as well as
being sent by the OS to the active application as normal.

Using LCB and LC9.0 you might be able to write an LCB widget that does
this, but I am not familiar enough with current OSX APIs for event
capture or drivers under OSX to or the state of work in LC9.0 on
integrating OS API calls to say for sure.

You are unlikely to be able to do what you want in LiveCode script alone.
