pixel checks while OS is locked

5 posts in this topic

If you are running a script while windows is locked or has the screen saver running, will getpixel type commands still work or will they be getting colors from the screensaver and not the windows behind the screensaver?

as I remember seeing somewhere that you can have scripts run while windows is locked, I suppose it could be possible depending on how AutoIt was written and how it runs...

I dunno, I'm not a developer

A VM will get the pixel providing you turn the screen saver off. Your actual desktop will get the screen saver if you let it go on. I dealt with this for awhile. Its a pain. VM's are the way to go. Also just a side note. If you remote desktop to a VM and then close the Remote desktop session. It will lock the computer and halt your script. The way I do it is install Logmein on the VM and access it that way. Then when you close LogMein it will not lock the computer and your scripts will run. Great for botting sites.
