Running bots when the screen is locked

Hiiii guys, can we run the bots when the screen is locked.


Hi buddy of course. You can run @venkatmalla6

Make sure that you have you selectors and activities like click and type into are enabled with simulate or sendwindowmessage properties…

That would surely let your bot to run in a system without you intervention buddy
Kindly try this and let know whether this works or not buddy
Cheers @venkatmalla6



We need unattended license with Enterprise Edition of UIpath to run bot when screen got locked.


Hi @Palaniyappan,
I am trying to run a Shutdown activity if the system is in locked state. I want to log into the system and check the number of logged in users. All the operations performed are in back-end so I cannot use Click or Type activity. I have tried with powershell scripting to shutdown the system, it didn’t work. Is there any alternate way to do this?
Also, I am using Community Version. will it work?

Hi @lakshman,
