If you want to know how to stop or prevent your Windows 10 computer from going to Sleep, Hibernate or Standby mode, then you can make use of one of these tools. In this post we will talk about Mouse Jiggler and Sleep Preventer.
Stop computer from Sleeping with Mouse Jiggler
Mouse Jiggler is another such tool that fools your computer that you are still around by sending ‘fake or virtual’ mouse inputs, thereby preventing your Windows PC from going to sleep.
It continuously jiggles the mouse pointer to prevent screen saver activation, sleep, or any such activity that may be triggered by computer inactivity.
Check the ‘Enable jiggle’ checkbox to begin jiggling the mouse; un-check it to stop. The ‘Zen jiggle’ checkbox enables a mode in which the pointer is jiggled ‘virtually’ – the system believes it to be moving but the pointer does not actually move.
You can download it CodePlex.
Prevent computer from switching to Sleep, Hibernate, Standby mode
Sleep Preventer is yet another portable app that prevents a computer from dimming the screen display or entering into standby, sleep, or hibernating mode.
