Possible to keep script running while logged off

6 posts in this topic

I'd like to keep a script running that involves both Send and mouse movements & clicks after a user account has been logged off. I want to run the script on one user account then log off that account and then log in to another on the same PC. From what I could tell, the script either stops executing or possbily keeps running but will not Send nor move the mouse or click on the screen.

As an alternative, is it possible to have a script confined to one window, send keystrokes, move the mouse around, and click but still have an operable mouse and keyboard to use in another window?

Thanks for any insight and possibly some code on how to do this if it is indeed possible.

I think that would be impossible with an account that is fully logged off.

It might be possible if the user only used "Switch user", if so, try ControlSend... but I'm not sure that it will work.

Logged off was a poor choice of words. Switch User is what I was thinking of.

Yeah, programs run all the time when someone switchs users.

Will the mouse movements, clicks, and keystrokes still happen? They don't seem to be.

Have you tried controlsend and control click? I would suggest testing them while logged in first just to make sure they're working...
