This forum seems very attractive, especially the outstanding tutorials. Could I ask for this one to go one step further?
I really want to find a shortcut that will make my Vista Home Premium 32bit go to SLEEP. I have been able to create shortcuts for Hibernate, Restart and Shutdown but not sleep.
The default action on my start globe button does put the PC to sleep, so the machine is capable of it.
The ultimate aim is to reconfigure one of my keyboard hot keys to achieve a one touch sleep. I can configure them via the registry and have done so for Restart and Hibernate.
Unsuccessful attempts to create a SLEEP shortcut include: C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState and shutdown with various switches.
Via the control panel I set the "When I press the Power button" option to every one of the options available without achieving success with a shortcut.
So, what program, with what switches is actually operating when I use the start globe and default button to put my PC to sleep? If I knew, I could create a shortcut to duplicate that command.
As you can see, I have tried and am obviously getting obsessed with this.
