Is there anyway to wakeup a computer from the screen saver using a batch file or a script?

I have the need to wakeup a computer back to the desktop from a screen saver if an executable runs.  Is there anyway I can batch or script the process of going back to the desktop from the screen saver?  The screen saver is not password protected.  I am looking for a complete script or batch solution.  Thanks...

For W2k, I assume? If you haven't done so already, install the W2k Support Tools (link below). This will give you kill.exe, and it should reduce your problem to

@echo off
kill.exe *.scr

If you start this with an at command, you might have to add the path to kill.exe.
