Free mouse cursor simulator

Mouse Jiggler is a free utility tool that will simulate the motions of a mouse cursor upon a screen. It can be used by those who don't want their computer to go into sleep mode. People who get paid to surf websites will also find this package beneficial. It's a lightweight tool that fakes mouse input to Windows and jiggles the mouse pointer back and forth to prevent idle detection which can eventually lead to screensaver activation.

Easy setup

This handy tool requires no setup thus, once you have it on your computer, you can immediately proceed with using it. At the same time, it doesn't need any configuration, just activate the jiggle function and the software will do all the work for you. The interface is extremely easy to work with. It offers options such as a standard mode and a ‘Zen’ mode which hides the motions of the cursor.

It does its job well without either altering any windows focus, rendering the mouse or turning the keyboard obsolete. What's more amazing is you can simultaneously open windows, type, or play various games without any interruptions even when this tool is enabled. Aside from that, the entire program is unobtrusive as can be accessed and minimized when not in use in the system tray.

With this tool, you will be able to prevent your screensaver from being a nuisance. You can now watch a movie or video longer and keep the adamant screensaver from launching in every idle moment of your system. Unfortunately, it doesn't include more handy features such as autorun on startup as well as timed startup or shutdown as the developer believed that the Task Scheduler in PC is a sufficient app for this.

Prevent idle detection

Mouse Jiggler is a great addition to your collection of utility tools. Through this, you won't have to worry about leaving your computer in idle mode. Without any setup or configuration needed, you can immediately proceed to activate its jiggling function and leave the rest to the program. Even when this tool is enabled in your background, you can still do your own thing on your PC. Although it lacks some minor features, it's still convenient to have.
