Test setup app

4 posts in this topic

OK, I want to setup for testing a unit (that is what I do) that is Vista operating system (Business).

I can use the PowerCFG.exe to change the standby, hibernate, monitor/display, hdd, etc timeouts to 0 (always on). I can use AutoIT to set up the rest of the param

However, I need to turn OFF the "require password" for resuming the laptop. I cannot "see" the ControlID areas in the Power Options window. Also, I do NOT want to muck around in the registry. I would like to know if there is another application like PowerCFG that ties back to turning on/off the "Require a passwordon wakeup".

Thanks

Well I hate to tell you but when you uncheck "On resume, password protect" Windows is messing with your registry anyways so don't be scared:

RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop", "ScreenSaverIsSecure", "REG_SZ", "0")

You are correct. Howver, the NAG (aka UAC) keeps coming up and AutoIt does not seem to be able to click "Continue" very well.

I hate to enable the REAL admin account and go there, but might have to

Well this is being set under HKEY_CURRENT_USER, so admin rights will set this only for admin account.

Maybe add #RequireAdmin at the top of your script???
