Very simple program that will move your mouse every 60 seconds. Great if you need to keep your session active, be it to stop a company mandated screen-saver from launching or to keep a your desktop from entering sleep mode..
I made it b/c all the other ones out there seem too complex, they want your email address or they want money? Really? This is like 20 lines of code (see below)
- Ctrl+Shift+M to exit
- Very very simple, almost zero system impact
- NO INSTALL - standalone product. No messy install or uninstall
- Simple, effective, easy.
- No settings, zero learning curve; just download, double-click and voila' - your computer is now gonna stay awake
- *NEW* - silent version. Same deal, just no initial popup. Nice b/c you can launch it remotely (say on your living room media pc) and it'll keep that machine awake while you watch movies on your laptop in bed!
- How to (assume the following things about this example)
- You want to keep the PC in your living room awake so you can stream a movie from it to your laptop in bed.
- MEDIA is the name of the PC in your living room
- an admin user on that pc is GUY (must be admin, must have password for this to work)
- GUY's password is PASSY
- Put mousemoversilent.exe somewhere on the target pc. Then make a scheduled task for yesterday titled monkey (yesterday b/c we'll be running it from a batch, we don't actually want it to run automatically).
- Batch command to start the monkey (to be run from your laptop)
- schtasks /RUN /S MEDIA /TN monkey /U MEDIA\GUY /P PASSY
- Batch command to stop the monkey (to be run from your laptop)
- schtasks /END /S MEDIA /TN monkey /U MEDIA\GUY /P PASSY

In fact, here is the code if you want to make it yourself:
HotKeySet ("+^m", "quit") ; shift ctrl m
MsgBox (0, "Seabyrd Tech - Mouse Monkey", "This program will center your mouse and move it a little bit every 60 seconds."&@crlf&@crlf&"To quit Mouse Monkey hit shift+ctrl+m or just right click the monkey near the clock", 15)
MouseMove (@DesktopWidth / 2, @DesktopHeight / 2)
$pos = MouseGetPos()
$x = $pos
$y = $pos
$i = 0
While $i = 0
$x = $x + 40
$y = $y + 40
MouseMove ($x, $y)
$x = $x - 40
$y = $y - 40
MouseMove ($x, $y)
Func quit ()
