Prevent screen lock on a restricted (company) computer

Prevent screen lock on a restricted (company) computer

I've written a PowerShell command that presses the ScrollLock key every 240 seconds, which otherwise has no effect on the computer, but prevents the screen from locking.
This command works on all Windows-based computers with restricted access.

This method also works on machines where you do not have administrator rights, cannot install programs, or cannot run portable programs.

It's simple to use. Type "PowerShell" in the Start menu, launch it, then copy and paste the following command (one line), and press Enter.

while(1){(New-Object -Com "Wscript.Shell").SendKeys("{SCROLLLOCK}");sleep 240}

This is what it will look like:

That's all. Be careful not to close the window.
