you can try this : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms686289(VS.85).aspx

fResume [in]

If this parameter is TRUE, restores a system in suspended power conservation mode when the timer state is set to signaled. Otherwise, the system is not restored. If the system does not support a restore, the call succeeds, but GetLastError returns ERROR_NOT_SUPPORTED.

For implementation of CreateWaitableTimer, SetWaitableTimer

Check the code is this thread:


How you enter Standby or Hibernation is important. From MSDN:


  __in  BOOLEAN Hibernate,
  __in  BOOLEAN ForceCritical,
  __in  BOOLEAN DisableWakeEvent

If DisableWakeEvent is set as true, it won't wake up when your timer expires. I believe Autoit's shutdown(32) & shutdown(64) (standby/hibernate) command will allow wake events, but for example, the improperly called, but often cited

rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState

Will both try to call a hibernate, and disablewake events.

I also believe pressing the "sleep" button on a computer will allow wake events.
