How to reset the system timeout screen saver progammatically (NT)?
Posted on 1997-03-20
Windows NT: Could anyone tell me how I can reset programmatically the system time-out that
controls the screen saver?
I've written a application to communicate Windows and a serial keyboard.
I'm using the Win API Keybd_event(VK_Mykey,0,0,0) function to synthesize a keystroke, but although the
"keys" are sent to the applications, the system "ignores" these "keys" in order to activate
or deactivate the screen saver. I know how I can kill the screen saver, but so far I have not
been able to stop the screen saver timeout whenever I send one of my "keys" to Windows.
I would really appreciate any help. Many thanks in advance.
