My wife and I work in remote environments and sometimes if the screen is not active the session goes to a prompt to login again.    Or sometimes your doing a presentation and the screen times out.  Well now this Mouse Jiggler will stop that.

Seems to work nice.

Completely forgot about this one. I did a talk on application whitelisting at our local User Group meet a couple of weeks ago. Now this app would have been a nice example of what kind of stuff application whitelisting really helps prevent :-)

Unfortunately my company blacklisted it, and if detected we have to send in scans. Then they have us re-image and return to user. But, we're in the banking industry.

Well, from the security point of view I wouldn't call this decision "unfortunate" but rather "sane" or "the only real way to deal with this".

Claus wrote a PowerShell script a while back that moved the mouse cursor to different corners of the monitor per a timer.
