MouseClick or other options

I work with the GPMC is on a VM that I RDP to. I need that RDP window to stop logging me out so frequently when I go to test a policy change on another machine and turn my head for 10 minutes. The next level up (of security staff), sets the 10 minute time limit policy so I can't edit that setting, but temporary circumvention is ok. I logon to the GPMC machine 25 times or more per day. Not exaggerating and I'm usually here for 12 hours so it's not as often as an 8 hour day.

I've build a bunch of simple scripts with mouseclick or mouse move set to move the cursor a couple pixels and back again every 9 minutes. None of these seems to work though. They do move the mouse, but the machine will still go to sleep.

I'm open to any alternate suggestions as well. Thanks for any help

Sample 1

Sleep(500)

For $i = 0 To 10000
    $MPOS = MouseGetPos()
    Sleep(500)
    MouseMove($MPOS[0]+2, $MPOS[1]+2)
    MouseMove($MPOS[0], $MPOS[1])
    Sleep(540000)
Next

Sample 2

$9_MINS = 54000

Sleep(3000)
For $i=1 to 1000
    MouseClick("Left", 300, 300, 1)
    Sleep($9_MINS)
    MouseClick("Left", 400, 100, 1)
    Sleep($9_MINS)
    MouseClick("Left", 500, 200, 1)
    Sleep($9_MINS)
Next

You could always install the server admin tools on your computer and then just update the policies from there instead of logging into the server to do it. Just connect the local installation of GPMC to the domain controller using the correct credentials.


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.

build a physical mouse pad that will vibrate every so often. That way the machine will NEVER go to sleep when you have this vibrating mousepad running.

lol. Build a vibrating mousepad. Why not make:

While 1

mousemove("left",0,0)

Sleep(1000)

MouseMove("Left",100,100)

Sleep(1000)

You could also modify the machine to never sleep. Making a script that can be turned on and turned off is free and gives you greater control. I can see a vibrating mousepad making the mouse fall off the desk.
