I created a vbs file to simulate UP arrow keypress every 59 seconds. I also set the screensaver to "None". But when I run the vbs file with keypress running, I see PC locks and brings up the login window.
I went to Display properties > Screen Saver settings and I see the following settings below graded.
1) Wait: 15 minutes
2) "On resume, password protect" checkbox is checked
Is there a way to override these settings by simulating keypress event? any other ideas?
You might have set the Screen Saver to None, but that doesn't mean it won't enter Screen Saver mode. There is another option there under the Screen Saver tab that dictates how long until it enters screen saver mode. Just set that to Never.
As for simulating this, sure there is a way to simulate it. You've already got the code to simulate a keypress, so you just need to figure out the steps to get to where you need to be.
9 out of 10 people I prove wrong agree that I'm right. The other person is my wife.
