    Question Mouse Interrupts

    How do i create mouse interrupts in C????????????

    i wanted to create a program that would prevent my computer from falling asleep, the problem is, the BIOS looks for mouse interrupts, not just the mouse moving. So, i want to create a program that will use a interrupt to move the mouse to random locations until the user presses a hot key (or at least do somthing similar).

    PLEASE help me

    Are you doing this in DOS or in a Windows program? You can't do it in DOS, but it can be easily done with a Windows program. You just handle the correct message.

    yes i'd say that DOS and windows are pretty much independant of eachother... also, judging by your name, you're a linux man, right? any more information?

    I'm 99.9% sure that you can't do mouse interrupts with DOS. It is a shell to Windows, so I'm sure there is a loop-hole somewhere. It isn't an OS, but a VM.

    >mouse interrupts with DOS

    on the contrary, 0x33 has interrupt functions for DOS mouse control... search for Ralph Brown's Interrupt List has a complete listing of these interrupt functions, as well as all others in the interrupt vector table [including reserved... it is just about mostly complete, the best reference you can get anywhere...]

    oh, and this seems silly... but maybe you can disable your computers ASPI auto-sleep option in your bios, as well as it in your OS system...

    um well that depends if he's actually working on DOS or the MS-DOS VM there, garf.


    And there is a way in pure DOS: http://www.c-for-dummies.com/lessons/bonus/06/

    I've also tested that compiling in DJGPP and it worked in a DOS console window. (I think it did, can't remember...) It won't compile in MSVC, though.

    Are you with Linux?? You should visit the Linux forum, then. We don't really have much knowledge of the Linux GUI.
