I need to detect wake event on windows 10

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have an Asus transformer tablet with Windows 10 32 bit. When I close it, it goes to sleep. When asleep, wifi is turned off. There is a WM_POWERBROADCAST message that is supposed notify applications that a power-management event has occurred, such as waking up. When the tablet wakes, it does not turn wifi back on. So I wrote a script to check the message, and sure enough, it does not fire. I was going to use that to force start wifi on wake up. I'm looking for an idea to get around that. But so far, I don't have anything. Besides complaining online about Microsoft or Asus bugs, does anyone have ideas?

Thanks!

Hi Exit,

Thanks for your post. It looks like it should work. But it went through several sleep and wake cycles, and it did not work.

The __PowerEVT_SINK_OnObjectReady function never fired. To check that, I added a logging function at the top of the function, and got no log.

I also tried it as administrator, just in case an app needs special rights to receive those messages, which in this case would be odd, That did not help anyway.

Here is the code:

$gobjWMI_CIMV2 = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\.\root\cimv2")
$gobjWMI_PowerEVT_Sink = ObjCreate("WbemScripting.SWbemSink")
ObjEvent($gobjWMI_PowerEVT_Sink, "__PowerEVT_SINK_")
$gobjWMI_CIMV2.ExecNotificationQueryAsync($gobjWMI_PowerEVT_Sink, "Select EventType from Win32_PowerManagementEvent")

While Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func __PowerEVT_SINK_OnObjectReady($wmiObject, $wmiAsyncContext)
    AddToLog($wmiObject.EventType, @ScriptDir & "\" & "EventList.log")
    Switch $wmiObject.EventType
        Case 7
            MsgBox(64+262144, Default, "OS reports resume from suspend is complete", 0)
            ShellExecute(@ScriptDir & "\force_start_wifi.exe")
    EndSwitch
EndFunc

Func AddToLog ( $What, $LogFileName)
dim $File
    $File = FileOpen ( $LogFileName, 1 )
    If $File = -1 Then Return
    FileWriteLine ( $File, @YEAR & "/" & @MON & "/" & @MDAY & " " & @HOUR & ":" & @MIN & ":" & @SEC & @TAB & $What & @CRLF )
    FileClose ( $File )
EndFunc

In case that's relevant, the tablet runs Windows 10 home 32 bits with a quad core cpu, Z3775.

Thanks!

Maybe this thread will help.  The code is a little old, but hopefully it helps.

I changed the Case statement
from :           Case 7
to:                 Case 6,7,8

$gobjWMI_CIMV2 = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\.\root\cimv2")
$gobjWMI_PowerEVT_Sink = ObjCreate("WbemScripting.SWbemSink")
ObjEvent($gobjWMI_PowerEVT_Sink, "__PowerEVT_SINK_")
$gobjWMI_CIMV2.ExecNotificationQueryAsync($gobjWMI_PowerEVT_Sink, "Select EventType from Win32_PowerManagementEvent")

While Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func __PowerEVT_SINK_OnObjectReady($wmiObject, $wmiAsyncContext)
    Switch $wmiObject.EventType
        Case 6,7,8  ; RESUME CRITICAL/SUSPEND/STANDBY = 6/7/8
            MsgBox(64+262144, Default, "OS reports resume from suspend is complete", 0)
            ShellExecute(@ScriptDir & "\force_start_wifi.exe")
    EndSwitch
EndFunc   ;==>__PowerEVT_SINK_OnObjectReady

      Does anybody know how I would go about getting the window title bar colour on Windows 10? I tried using _WinAPI_GetSysColor, and manually reading the registry (HKCU\Control Panel\Colors, ActiveTitle) but in either case I get the same (0x99B4D1, wrong) result.
      RegRead('HKCU\Control Panel\Colors', 'ActiveTitle') ; Returns 153 180 209 (aka 99B4D1) _WinAPI_GetSysColor ($COLOR_ACTIVECAPTION) ; Returns 0xD1B499 (aka 99B4D1)

      As the title says, does anyone know of a way to open the Windows 10 action center using AutoIt. Maybe via rundll or some other applet?
      My intention is to just hide the normal icon, then have an AutoIt system tray icon that will open the action center on click. And I can't just send the Win+A hotkey because I have it disabled. 
      Thanks for reading.

      Hi folks,
      I'm hoping someone can help me out here.
      Background:
      I have the need to run a program with admin credentials (#RequireAdmin), and then get the SID of the locally logged in account. Not the admin account.
      If you look at the attached script, Line 16 uses the @UserName variable and returns the SID for the admin account I used to launch the app.
      I want to use line 17 which passes the result of the _GetUsername function which is a username using  ($UserName) to the WMIService.
      I'm getting " The requested action with this object has failed.:" error message.
      Any suggestions would be appreciated!

      I’m wondering how to add a Windows Hello option to the additional PIN, Fingerprint, and Facial Recognition options? I'd like an interface that could be linked to the Windows Hello authentication system and AutoIt itself.
      I understand that this discussion did not meet the Forum Rules, I apologize about that. I'd like to point out that this post is asking for a way to attach into the Windows Hello service. I'd like to follow the same concept that YubiKey's interact with Windows Hello as seen here: https://www.yubico.com/2016/09/yubikey-works-windows-hello/.

      Hello all! 
      I am having a bit of trouble and was wondering if anyone may have a workaround for my issue. I made a script that would automatically install a piece of software each night on a Windows 7 Box. Now I have been instructed to do the same with a Windows 10 box since the application is now being tested on Windows 10. 
      The way I did the win7 installation was that I made a script and then made an executable that I call with a batch file along with the Installer. So the process is 
      AutoitMainFile calls batch file, batch file opens Installer, and the automatedinstaller.exe  The automatedinstlaller waits 10-20 seconds to make sure the Installer has been fully loaded.
      When I try to do the same both get loaded but the automatedinstallation.exe does not send commands to the installer. The code does work and nothing from the program we are wanting to install has changed as our Windows 7 runs every night no problem. 
       
      Do I need to make a new automatedinstall script for windows 10? 
      Any advice is appreciated 
      Thanks,
      Richard
