Enter sleep, not hibernate as shutdown method
« on: November 02, 2009, 10:24:33 AM »
Apologies if this has been asked before (did a search) but it'd be nice to have sleep as well as hibernate as options as I use this a lot on Windows 7.  Obviously resuming from S3 is much faster than hibernate and this would be an easy addition to the program :)

Thanks for listening  ;D

Hi,

I second this one. As far as I can see there is no difference between the Shutdown method "Go to Standby (hibernate)" whether I select the 'Prevent entering standby mode" or not. Both put the computer into hibernation.

Please add a Sleep/Standby mode as Shutdown method!

Thanks,

Avi.

Both sleep and hibernation have their uses, as does hybrid sleep - it's just useful to have the option there given it's easy to add in code.  I'd prefer to let windows decide to hibernate the pc if necessary (e.g. if a power cut lasts longer than an hour and my UPS dies) but to avoid it otherwise.  Which API does altbinz use for power management anyway?

I don't see an option for sleep running 0.31.3 in windows 7 with compatible hardware.   :(

Sorry I didn't realize that Standby (A term used in WinXP and before) and Sleep (a term introduced in Windows Vista and onwards) were synonymous.

Anyway, I just tested, and the new version of alt.binz put my system into Hibernation, and not Sleep (Standby) mode, when I had set it to Standby in Misc #2.

The same here. it doesn't matter if I select Standby or Hibernation, the system hibernates.

Is alt.binz using SetSystemPowerState() http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa373206(VS.85).aspx or is it using something else to shutdown?

Yes, you're both right. Doesn't work here either.

Hibernate: rundll32.exe Powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 1,0,0
Sleep: rundll32.exe Powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,0,0

However if hibernate is enabled it enters it on both commands.

Should be fixed now. I double checked it now. However once new version is out, response would be nice.
