will script still run if screen saver starts?

Recommended Posts


I have a script that uses things like WinWaitActive, ControlCommand 'IsVisible' etc...

It will run when the computer is unmanned.

Will the screen saver stop these from working?

If so what would be a easy way to temporarly disable or stop the screen saver from kicking in while the AU3 script is running?

No, a screensaver shouldn't disable this. The screensaver is just a program that masks the desktop and the windows shell. It doesn't actually stop anything from working.

If for some reason it does stop the script or you just don't want the screensaver to be active, just move the mouse a little bit every so often before the screensaver would activate

I.e. Every minute or so just move the mouse to a random point and back, or just a pixel or two off. Example:


Func MoveMouse()

$mouse = MouseGetPos()

MouseMove(0, 0)

MouseMove($mouse[0], $mouse[1])
