Windows : System Unlock

Automation testing during application idle time may get affected if the system locks.
There are many ways in preventing the same, one would be pass a keyboard event at regular intervals.

PS: Take care the key pressed does not any impact on the script run.

'Pass Numlock key evnet every 10 sec
'To get the keywords for other keys refer MSDN site

set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Dim i
i = 11
MsgBox i
While i > 10
WshShell.SendKeys "{NUMLOCK}"
WScript.Sleep 10000
i = i + 1

'Post assisted, you were looking for something else, write back
** Happy Automating**
