comment How can I add an exception to a Thunderbird filter?
1. Did you think I didn't google it first? 2. The results from google don't answer my question. 3. Your answer doesn't answer my question. Sorry :(

comment In Windows 7, why won't my display stay off despite the power settings saying it should?
Another test - I changed the nircmd command to turn the screensaver on, and set up a "blank screen" screensaver. This works as expected - I click the shortcut, and the screen goes blank and stays that way until I move the mouse. This is ok, I guess, but not ideal because there's still a bit of a glow coming from the monitor (a blank screensaver is still brighter than the monitor being off). So I can pretty safely say it's not the mouse that's moving, unless there are different "thresholds" for being "awake" for the monitor being off vs. in screensaver mode.

And one other thing I just tried - I kept the mouse still and didn't even touch it, and then ran the nircmd command using just the keyboard from a command prompt. The mouse is not moving - it's across the room. Still, the monitor turns right back on.

comment In Windows 7, why won't my display stay off despite the power settings saying it should?
Well, this is bizarre. It's a cordless USB mouse so I tried two things. First, I clicked the shortcut for nircmd, and immediately unplugged the USB receiver. It worked! The screen stays off. However, when I switch to the "turn off asap" power profile, and then unplug the receiver, it still won't turn off. But seriously, this mouse is not moving - it is perfectly still, on my desk, and I'm going to great care to just push the button as quickly and quietly as possible...

comment Is there any way I can more easily run Outlook rules?
You just made my day. Tiny modification to iterate again over the specific rules that I want to run, and it's running perfectly. Thanks!

You really don't mean "recursive".
