Screen saver measures! A tool that can move the mouse automatically
There is a tool called USB Mouse Jiggler as a screen saver / automatic screen lock countermeasure.
As the name suggests, it is a tool that allows the mouse pointer to quiver and prevent the screen saver from activating just by inserting the USB into your computer.
Even though the mouse pointer moves automatically, it does not move much, it moves on the spot and the screen reacts to it, so it is hard to notice, and because the product is small, I also notice that USB is inserted. It’s difficult.

Since it is USB, you can keep your screen as it is even on a computer whose administrator is someone else.
On the contrary, if you want to restore it and start the screen saver to lock the screen automatically, press [Windows key + L] on the keyboard by yourself or remove it.
It’s a fairly small tool for the price, so be careful when storing it so that you don’t lose it.
