My script is like this:

	IfWinNotActive Andy
		WinActivate Andy
		WinWaitActive Andy
		MouseGetPos x, y
		click 715,345
		MouseMove x,y
		Send !{TAB}
	} else {
		click 715,345
	Sleep 10000

But the mouse is moving and clicking before the "Andy" window is on screen.

The same script were working correctly before. What may be causing this?

There could be several reasons. I suggest adding a sleep after the WinWait command.
Also avoid having multiple windows with the name Amdy.

WinWaitActive only waits until the active window has the given title; it does not check whether the window is visible or ready to be interacted with.
