I don't think it is a good idea, simple supressing is the output.
The user should have a feeling, if he can "take" the console or not,
and also the start and stop of the time window he can "take" the

So a simple other mechanism is better, for example a simple wheel
`|', `/', `-', `/' rotating the number of seconds waiting for user
reaction. At user reaction, the wheel can be propably erased, but this
single character is not a problem on display.

What do you think .... ?? (discussion) ....

With friendly regards
