runwait command

I tried this:

RunWait("powercfg.exe" & "/change " & chr(34) & "home/office desk" & chr(34) & " /monitor-timeout-ac 5",,)

It does not work due to problem with quote marks I think.

I am trying to do this, which does work in a command window.. (powercfg /change "home/office desk" /monitor-timeout-ac 5)

I always have problems with quotes in my run command lines... Thanks for any hep provided!!! Jim

RunWait("powercfg.exe " & '/change "home/office desk" /monitor-timeout-ac 5', "", "")

if you want to put some parameters in command line make sure there is a space between file path and parameters.

use '' instead of "" if needed.
