      WANTED
       FOUND
   Reward: 10Т
 Program that will
temperially disable
mouse movement
when a hotkey is
        held.

I need a lil' program that will stop mouse movement while a hot key is pressed. What I need this for is so that I can use Maomi to start the screensaver, then pick up my mouse and place it in it's charger without de-activating the screen saver.

I have the cure for what ails you--I had the exact same problem.

Check out this freeware app, Screen Saver Control.

Set the option 'Use continuous mode' to 3 secs and you're good to go.

I have a shortcut in a launch bar to pass the parameter '-poweroff' (shuts off the monitor) [but you can also pass '-screensaver' to activate the screensaver].

To use this with Maomi, set it to open the .lnk when the mouse hovers in your designated spot.

Cheers!

Try StopMouse.ahk (or StopMouse.exe). It uses the f8 hotkey to toggle mouse movement and right and left click.

Thanks! But it actually isn't working exactly like I need it to. The curser kindof pulsates around where it's frozen.

Sad As you didn't describe what it was supposed to do, i did my best to comply to your needs, since there is no way to exclusivelly block the mouse in AHK (one can only block all the input, both mouse and keyboard, like skrommel proposed).
But i think that skrommel's solution can solve your needs, no?

Yeah, I realised that I haden't described my needs in the first post after I tried stopmouse...

I figure for this one, you both get the reward.

noth(a)nk.you, I think this might be something I'll use too...

DONATIONCREDITS for everyone!
