Mouse Jiggler is a free and tiny Codeplex utility which some users may find useful.

Project Description:
Mouse Jiggler is a very simple piece of software whose sole function is to "fake" mouse input to Windows, and jiggle the mouse pointer back and forth.

Useful for avoiding screensavers or other things triggered by idle detection that, for whatever reason, you can't turn off any other way; or as a quick way to stop a screensaver activating during an installation or when monitoring a long operation without actually having to muck about with the screensaver settings.

Requirements:
Requires .NET Framework 2.0, nothing else.

I don't know how it compares with Mouse Jiggler, but in similar situations I've used Caffeine, which fakes keystrokes.  It's by Tom Revell, more famous as the author of Stickies.  It's small, and doesn't need .NET.

It's always nice to have several options.  smiley
