Windows Lock Screen

Postby tcarvalho » Fri Mar 13, 2020 2:15 pm

Hello all,

Is there a way to have Robotask get around/through the windows lock screen? Our machines time out at 5 minutes of inactivity (for security reasons) and require a sign in to get back in. I have not found a way to script robotask to deal with the windows lock. This is interfering with scheduled tasks, so I have to manually run these tasks.

Looking for any suggestions/recommendations if this possible or not.

Thanks!

Unfortunately you can not unlock computer from within a locked session.
Also Windows™ ignores keyboard and mouse simulation in locked session.
This is the property of system security
