Re: Is there a script to auto press a key top prevent backlight timeout?

Unfortunately, this didn't work. Mouse movements don't trigger the keyboard backlight after it's gone out -- only key presses do that (I don't know why I didn't realize that sooner).

So I would need to figure out how to clone an actual physical keypress, if that is at all possible...

Re: Is there a script to auto press a key top prevent backlight timeout?

It's an Acer Spin 5. Great laptop EXCEPT for its backlight keyboard whose 30 second timeout is a power saving feature. What's frustrating is the laptop has a +10 hour battery life, so it could totally stand to waste a little extra power keeping the keyboard continuously lit. Others on the acer forum...

Re: Is there a script to auto press a key top prevent backlight timeout?

Thank you very much for taking the time to reply -- unfortunately, that didn't work. The script is correct but since this is a weird hardware issue, it needs to replicate an actual physical keypress, not the end result of the keypress. I know there are cases where AHK can be effective on a hardware ...

Re: Is there a script to auto press a key top prevent backlight timeout?

Honestly, I couldn't make heads or tails of that. I'm really a complete noob at this. I only use one script to keep certain windows on top, whether focused or not (very handy) that another user was kind enough to forward me. Given that what most people seem to use autohotkey for is pretty elaborate ...

Is there a script to auto press a key top prevent backlight timeout?

I know this is a stretch, since this is more a hardware issue -- but I was wondering if there was a script I could run that would mimic a keypress to prevent my keyboard backlight from timing out? I work in a very dim office and need to have the keyboard backlight on pretty much all the time. Unfort...

Re: Need script to always start program in system tray

That looks awesome!! Just what I was looking for! I'm on my work computer and it works perfectly with notepad -- will try this at home tonight with Debut and see if I can match this behavior with that app. ----- I just tried replicating this script with Calculator on my Win 7 work machine -- just as...

Re: Need script to always start program in system tray

Run, NotePad.exe,,Min This is minimizing the window but not in the system stray. At least if the app doesn't include this function already (something like 'put in system tray if minimized'). Debut doesn't have that function, which is why I was asking if maybe there was a way to use AHK to force the...

Re: Need script to always start program in system tray

This is possible, using a combination of WinHide/WinShow + Shell_NotifyIcon . Haven't tested this yet but you might have to specify a dummy window (perhaps the script's window) for Shell_NotifyIcon -> script receives notification messages(on icon click, hover etc.) then perform the necessary task o...

Need script to always start program in system tray

I apologize if this is not the right forum. I have a video capture program that I have launched at startup, but I would like to have it minimized to system tray when it launches. The program has no such option in its settings unfortunately. Given how many incredible and complex things autohotkey see...
