Codespaces while using vim in terminal

I love codespaces so far. However I am a dedicated vim user. I have been happily using codespaces + vim through the VSCode terminal without any real issues with one exception.

It doesn’t seem that the terminal interaction is counted as interaction in spaces, and eventually I am suspended (most times without notice). Is there some way we can support this methodology? VSCode Vim just doesn’t quite cut it for me.

Hey there! This seems like a bug! Typing/clicking anywhere within the codespace should count as activity. I’m letting our engineering team know so that they can investigate!

Thanks for letting us know.
