Possible to add a Mouse Jiggler?

Would like to be able to keep remote device awake that doesn't have typical "sleep" settings.

    It's unlikely that I'll add this to the web app anytime soon, but you can do this easily with a shell script.

    If you SSH in to your TinyPilot and run these commands, it will jiggle the mouse every three seconds.

    wget https://gist.githubusercontent.com/mtlynch/906534da530482e9afcf1e1309b3dbbe/raw/3e51ba4fe87d609503d19cf1404d259d1a1ea9e2/tinypilot-jiggle.bash
    chmod +x tinypilot-jiggle.bash
    ./tinypilot-jiggle.bash
    

    The script is pretty straightforward, so you can modify it to tweak the timing:
