    Oh i had it backwards then. Your question is based on misunderstanding what the passive check rules are for.

    They aren't for when a character isn't actively trying to do something.

    They are for when a player isn't actively rolling a die. Either because they can't know a check is happening, or because it would require rolling over and over again.

    Its passive on the part of the player, not the character. The character can be, even usually is, doing something active.
