ScreensaverStopper

This application sends the F24 keystroke every 40 seconds. This way, windows should not activate the screensaver.

More information found here

Useful if you do not have rights to disable the screensaver, but can run executables.

There is no window, no output, no settings, just a keystroke every 40 seconds. If you need to stop the application, use the task manager.
