Avoid Sleep Mode With USB Shake Stick

avoid sleep mode usbThere are a large number of computer users out there which need to eliminate the function of their computer going into sleep mode.  I was talking to a friend of mine last night who had this exact problem. The problem was at the corporate level the IT guys started a function that once your computer went idle for 30 minutes the screen saver would pop up requiring a password login.  The reason behind such a decision was unclear, but it’s probably related to measuring productivity. Well, as any good employee would do, you  search Google for a work around.  Today we found one.  The USB shake stick, which doesn’t actually shake, but is a device that keeps your mouse moving in the screen so that sleep mode never turns on. You can avoid sleep mode through this USB stick by simply connecting it to your computer and setting up the preferences [shake speed of mouse icon]. Although the above example is a great way to circumvent a corporate policy, there are a couple legitimate reasons.  For example, if the company policy is to turn on the screen save after 30 minutes, this could become a problem for long installation process’ of software.  To avoid a lock down during the installation, you can use the USB shake stick to keep the computer awake.  See, it’s not all about cheating your boss. Cost – $29. Source:  Wiebetech.
