I discovered this one by accident, but it's working well for me. I've
had a combination sitting/standing setup for a while, with two monitors
at the appropriate heights and keyboard/mouse access at both positions.
Problem is, when I get busy (which is always), I don't always remember
to switch from sitting to standing and back again.

As of this morning, the sitting monitor only has a keyboard for input,
and the standing monitor only has a mouse. Even a well-known keyboard
maniac like me uses the mouse pretty frequently, which forces me to
switch positions.
