Creates fake mouse movements to emulate activity and disable screensaver.

Mouse Jiggler is a small and sometimes helpful tool which will simulate mouse movement.

The program itself really has no other functions other than faking mouse movement. This functionality can be useful in certain situations, not least of which is to disable annoying screensavers which can then prevent one from having to unlock their system.

The application remains silently in the system tray and can be easily activated and subsequently deactivated at any time with just a couple of clicks.

Use of this program also does not get in the way of when you're actually using the PC.

Overall, Mouse Jiggler can be helpful in some situations and is somewhat unique in that there are very little non-ad-supported or completely free apps out there like it.
