There are tools such Mouse Jigglers that will keep Windows 10 from locking or going to sleep. The drawback of Mouse Jigglers for Windows 10 is that, well your mouse is moving.
This freeware utility I created called "PC Awake" will keep your Windows PC from locking or going to sleep without moving the mouse. The PC Awake App also has a feature to stop after a certain number of hours, or never. This is great if you want your PC to remain unlocked while you are home or working, but when you are done it will automatically stop and allow your PC to sleep or lock as normal.
There are similar products out there (paid and free) my goal was to make something simple and useful. With some locking features with security in mind so that your PC will lock as normal after a period of time you set.
- Prevent Windows from Sleeping or Locking the Screen (for an hour or more)
- Does not move your mouse pointer
- Minimize to the System Tray
- Does not interrupt your normal PC activities
- Stop the process on demand
Set to run for 1 hour
1 hour run time is up! (in this case I clicked stop to capture the screen shot, ignore the end time)
