Hi all,
Perhaps you could help with an annoying problem I have.

I need a program to automatically move my mouse every 15 mins or so, to enable the screensaver to be disabled so that I can see my desktop.

Granted I can set the screen saver to off, but I need to have the screensaver on, but once the screen saver is on I can not see if any chat requests or emails have been received on my desktop. I do not want to enable sounds on outlook to inform me of new emails, hence the auto mouse mover question.

Thank you in advance.

I don't think there is a program like that....but I am sure it wouldn't be that hard to code. Sounds like your lazy though (no offense), but I knew a couple of programs a long time ago that would mess with your mouse.

Try there, they have a program called Mouse Jumper which makes your mouse jump unexpectadly. Maybe you can either get someone to recode it or maybe you can change some settings :).

Otherwise it's not impossible
Such option can be put in the screen saver by the author
