I would like to point out that this is total crap, Linux does not give you good tools for simulating a 'mouse jiggle,' nor is there reasonable documentation on doing so. My journey down that road left me with the impression that there was possibly some protocol for writing to /dev/mouse that might move the mouse around, but I never found out what that protocol might be.

/usr/X11R6/bin/xset -display :0.0 s off /usr/X11R6/bin/xset -display :0.0 s noblank
