This utility is now updated to auto prevent at startup.
This utility is developed to prevent windows from locking during executions of automated test cases.
Below is the link to download this utility
Prevent Windows from locking
To prevent windows from locking during executions, download the utility and run the .exe file.
Click on the prevent lock button. You will see the message “Windows Lock Prevented”. Utility should be minimized and running for preventing windows from locking.
Once the executions are done and you want to resume the windows locking, then you can either click on the resume or close the application.
How it works
This utility will not send any key strokes/mouse movements. This utility will also not edit registry keys on the system.
When you click on the “prevent lock” button, this utility will send message to windows operating system that the current program needs system to be awake and unlocked. Basically this will have the same effect when you play a movie, the only difference is that we are not playing any movie. So as soon as you will close app, windows will resume locking the system.
