Script to put Windows in sleep/standby

Recommended Posts

twax462

I'm trying to make a script work that will put my HTPC into sleep/standby mode on a particular keypress (cntrl+alt+s in this instance).  I found the following code online, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to work.  I don't have any experience writing scripts and am pretty unfamiliar with the syntax so I googled around to find an answer or an alternate script but so far have been unable to make anything work.  Creating a windows shortcut won't work in this instance, it has to be a script.  I'd appreciate any help that anyone could provide.  Thanks in advance!

 

;Sleep system: (ctrl+alt+s)
^!s::
DllCall("PowrProfSetSuspendState", "int", 0, "int", 0, "int", 0)
return

twax462,

Welcome to the AutoIt forums. :)

That does not look like AutoIt syntax, more like AutoHotKey - are you sure you are in the right place? :huh:

You're absolutely right.  I had misread the post that I got the code from and made the mistake of thinking it was an autoit script as opposed to AutoHotKey.  That's what hours spent configuring Flirc, a logitech remote, and XBMC have done to my brain.  My apologies...but thank you for the quick respose.

twax462,

No problem. But are you sure you do not want to use AutoIt rather than its inferior spin-off? :huh:

Haha.  At this point in time I'm inclined to use whatever gets the job done.  I was able to get that code working as-is in AHK, but if someone feels inclined to come up with something equivalent for me with AutoIt that will work then I'd be happy to give that a try.

twax462,

It looks as if this should work (untested): ;)

#include< AutoItConstants.au3>

HotKeySet("^!s", "_Standby")

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func _Standby()
    Shutdown($SD_STANDBY)
EndFunc
