Idleness (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

inertia

'idleness' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for inertia that I've seen before include "Slowness to take action, state of laziness" , "Immobility" , "Apathetic state" , "Motion (if any) when no external force is applied" , "Slowness to act, lassitude" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald, The Times, The Guardian, the Newsday.com, The Telegraph and the Universal.
