Welcome to AutoIt and the forum!

Can you please tell us which program you try to automate?

Moving the mouse in the background and doing other things at the same time will not work.

But there are more reliable ways to do what you want to do.

Hi ,

Is there any way or API in Autoit which will run on background and any manual intervention doesn't effects it like hitting keystrokes or mouse click.

 i.e. If you run any script for notepad and any other window pops up the control of Autoit should not gets to the new window and run the script for that new window.

Any help is appreciated..

Sending Keystrokes and Mouseclicks isn't a very reliable way to automate an application.

Can you please tell us which program you try to automate? Most of the times there are more reliable ways to do what you want to do.
