Is there a way to disable the mouse and keyboard without locking my computer?

Cristián Torres-Gluck Balmaceda June 2, 2013


I was wondering if there is a way to temporarily disable the mouse and keyboard without actually locking the computer itself? I have these videos that I am streaming over the Internet and if I lock my computer, it won’t play the videos and instead it will just show the lock screen.

So, how do I ensure that nobody else (except for me) can reactivate them?

    There's this cool feature in Splashtop Streamer 2 that allows you to use your computer remotely without interference from external mouse or keyboard movements. Enabling "Blank Screen" turns the screen of the computer you are controlling white and blocks keyboard and mouse input. It's very useful as you can control your computer remotely without anyone being able to see what you are doing. The feature is very robust as the only way to break the blank screen is to unplug the internet or turn off the computer.
    I don't know if this is what you are looking for but hope I helped!
