There may be a way. I have not tried yet.

This will disable mouse selection. The next time you click on dw all rows/columns will be deselected.
dw_1.Modify("DataWindow.Selected.Mouse=No")

This will enable mouse selection again.
dw_1.Modify("DataWindow.Selected.Mouse=No")

I am not sure if that would completely resolve your issue. I will try and see if there is anything else you can do.

This is one way:

You will need to use GetCursorPos, SetCursorPos, Mouse_Event WIN APIs. First move the cursor on top of the dw and call mouse_event api to simulate left click. And then move the cursor back to original position.

Psedo-code:
SetReDraw(False)
GetCursorPos
SetCursorPos
Mouse_Event
SetCursorPos
SetReDraw(True)

See examples of GetCursorPos, SetCursorPos, Mouse_Event WIN APIs below:
