How to use PowerShell for Simple Mouse Jiggler in Windows

The following PowerShell script is designed to move the mouse cursor randomly on the screen.

This can be useful for preventing your computer from entering sleep mode or locking the screen due to inactivity.


  • Windows OS: This script is designed for Windows operating systems – such as Windows 10 or Windows 11
  • PowerShell: Make sure PowerShell is installed and accessible on your machine.

PowerShell Script 

Add-Type -assemblyName System.Windows.Forms;$a=@(1..100);while(1){[System.Windows.Forms.Cursor]::Position=New-Object System.Drawing.Point(($a|get-random),($a|get-random));start-sleep -seconds 5}

How does this work?

  • Add-Type -assemblyName System.Windows.Forms: Adds the System.Windows.Forms assembly to access the Cursor class.
  • $a=@(1..100): Creates an array with integers from 1 to 100.
  • while(1): Infinite loop to keep the script running.
  • [System.Windows.Forms.Cursor]::Position: Sets the mouse cursor’s position.
  • New-Object System.Drawing.Point(($a|get-random),($a|get-random)): Randomly selects an x, y coordinate from the array $a.
  • start-sleep -seconds 5: Pauses the script for 5 seconds before running the loop again.

How to use the Script

  1. Open PowerShell: Open PowerShell.
  2. Copy and Paste: Copy the one-liner script and paste it into the PowerShell window.
  3. Execute: Press Enter to execute the script.

Your mouse cursor will now move to a random position every 5 seconds.

To Stop the Script

  • Close PowerShell Window: Simply close the PowerShell window where the script is running.


  • Use Responsibly: This script will move the cursor indefinitely until stopped.
