While trying to un-blank monitor in a script, I stumbled over various ways to send fake X11 events (for example keyboard ones). Most tools use the XTest X11 extension (like we do in our numlock helper), like Claudio's Anarkey.

For example, xdotool is a rather complete tool to simulate of lot of X11 events, allowing to send keyboard, mouse, and window events.
