Someone I know once made a USB powered mechanical device that jiggled
the mouse.

Think Geek sell a USB device that pretends to be a jiggling mouse.

I have heard of people using a pencil with erasor tip and their laptop's
screen to hold down the shift key.

If screen locks are a corporate policy, you can assume that cirumventing
security measures is probably not allowed by corporate policy either.

Just supposing corporate, in their infinite wisdom,  imposed timed
screenlocking on their unwilling subjects.
And of course locked the control panel so we're stuck with it.

Is there a Windows utility that will detect 5 minutes of inactivity,
and generate some artificially, eg push Shift, or move the mouse?

Sorry for introducing an on-the-nose topic in such refined company,

Konqueror has gotten so clever for its own boots
  that it has forgotten what a web browser is for.
