Darkanel,

Use "EXIT", not "EXITLOOP" when you want to exit the script.

You're not allowing the guigetmsg function to set the massage to the variable...

Also, since you seem to be starting at this, try to avoid using while loops and make your learning experience involve more "on event" functions, you'll thank me later.

I don't think he wants to exit the script. If he uses Exit, it will close his Gui. I see it as him wanting to go back to Ready or Idle status.

Edit: NM, I misread his request. I thought he wanted to just go back to the interface..

To OP,

What is this for?

Your button title leads me to believe you want people to believe this is to prevent a screen saver to kick in.

DarkAnel,

Not altogether of the same opinion. Choose whichever best suits whatever you are trying to do - which means you need to understand both Event Modes (MessageLoop and OnEvent). ;)

this script is to prevent the computer to go sleep, i do alot of computer update and i open a RDP on the user session and sometime the update take alot of time and the session lock because no activity was done on the computer

when you are on a domain you cant do what you want, and where i work we got a GPO if the computer is in idle for 10 minute the session lock and we can't play in the display option to disable the screen saver

and its why i want to generate some activity on the computer with this script

Actually, my subtle point was that clicking a button would already disable a screen saver.

Well, I know that...

Point is that I think we can both agree that this is not the corrrect way of going about this.

Sure. And what GPO would this be that you can't just log right back in?

Probably just the hassle of having to log back in IMO. We have similar polcies, but it shouldn't hurt what your running in the session though.

this is one of the early scripts I made and still use today ;)

I have a machine I don't want to lock (and can't change the setting) so I have this script running 24/7 and works wonderfully.

Since the mouse only moves just enough to keep the pc from locking, it doesn't interfere with other stuff you are doing.

While 1
$pos = MouseGetPos()
$x = $pos[0]
$y = $pos[1]
If $x<1023/2 And $y<767/2 Then MouseMove($x + 5,$y + 5)
If $x>1023/2 And $y>767/2 Then MouseMove($x - 5,$y - 5)
If $x<1023/2 And $y>767/2 Then MouseMove($x + 5,$y - 5)
If $x>1023/2 And $y<767/2 Then MouseMove($x - 5,$y + 5)
 Sleep(300000)
WEnd

This thread stinks of a big pile.

@EndFunc: Yes, logging in would be inconvenient but pressing a button every 10 mins to prevent the screen saver kicking in wouldn't? Why not focus the mouse on the remote host and move the mouse?

@OP: Your job responsibilities are perplexing. You have RDP rights but are asking me you need a user password to log back into your session?

No offence (sincerely) but I am not believing your reason you need help with this script.

thank you tho share you script it will work, but i will not the only one to use this script and its why i want a GUI to start and stop the script

i have do a script with a loop of mousemove with a exit hotkey but if someone start the script and dont know the hotkey, the user need to kill the process its not really good but anyway i pretty sure someone will have a small modification on my script

(sorry for my bad english)

Reg2Post, do you even work on computers in a domain? If not, you really shouldn't say anything because you're starting to look silly.

When I'm logged into a computer on any of the domains I work on, they will all lock if the idle time kicks in, and then I HAVE to log back onto the Windows environment because the screensaver password screen is showing. If I don't have the user's password, I'm stuck until I can get in touch with that user. If I RDP into that computer, I'm logged in as myself, but if I use LanDesk, I'm logged into their session, same with Dameware. If this prevents having that happen, then it's useful.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

OK I HAVE SAID RDP but its to easy understand i use DAMEWARE to do a remote control on a computer and i jump directly in the user session, AND I GOT A GPO, and this gpo lock the computer after 10 minutes, i have try alot of thing but nothing work the mouse need to move..

You should know the only way to have the user password on a domain is to do a password reset, and the user will not loving it...

Oh yeah, i need to tell also i can not mouve the mouse of 20 pc in sametime to generate activity... i just can pray to return on the computer before the end of 10 minutes

If you are RDP'd to a server or computer, it will still lock if you are idle. Its just a window. so in order to keep it from locking it must be maximized and activity occurring, e.g. moving the mouse. Also, when you do desktop support often the user leaves you with the PC so that you can do work on it. If you didn't get their password and the computer locks if you step away, then you have to track them down to get it. What if they left for the day? Then you have to wait to finish.

So there are many reasons why someone would like to keep the screensaver from coming on in a domain environment.

Edit:

The same principle applies to Dameware as well. You are still controlling the users local session so you will need to send mouse movements to the Dameware window to keep their computer from locking locally which you are viewing.
