Ok, I really don't know where to post this but I want to leave my computer on the night and have a mouse click emulated every 5 seconds or so. I tried a combination of muse keys and a application called "macrokey" but it wouldn't loop. Now I can't tell you what this is for, but be assured, I am not trying to cheat on anything ^^. How would I do this?

I think that, unless you give some reasonable explanation of what you'd use this for, we'll have to assume it's illegal. I can't think, offhand, of any valid reason for that... which might be why you can't easily find ways to do it. :rolleyes:

I'll retract the ':rolleyes:' if you respond with a legit reason.

There are settings in the Energy Saver pane of System Preferences that'll keep your baby awake overnight if that's what you're after. Otherwise, assuming your intentions are legal, then hire man with a stick to beat your mouse into submission every so often. It shouldn't cost all that much considering how fun a mouse-beating-with-stick job would be.

In LA, you can hire that man for dirt cheap
