Solved Create Sleep button shortcut on desktop

I am glad I found this site!
Brink has created all kinds of cool desktop shortcuts for 8.1

There is one that I hope he can help me with.

I have created a shutdown shortcut on my Win 8.1 tablet that works nicely (thanks to Brink).

My tablet has a physical button on the side that is used to put the tablet into instant sleep mode.
You press the button and the tablet immediately turns off (goes to sleep).
You press the button again and the tablet immediately turns on again (comes out of sleep).

I would like to create a shortcut on my desktop (NOT the Metro start screen) that will function the same way the
physical button does, that is, the tablet will immediately turn off (goes to sleep).

Someone posted something close, but not quite the same thing; ....powrprof.dll.SetSuspendState Sleep
When I create a shortcut with the above code the tablet actually *shuts down*.
I know this because when I press the power button the tablet goes through the cold start up routine.

I would like the shortcut to do EXACTLY the same thing that happens when I press the power button on the tablet; go *immediately* into sleep. And pressing the power button after that should turn the tablet *immediately* back on.

Thanks!

This might be what you want.

Copy & paste this into Notepad & choose All files & save it as sleep.bat.

C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,1,0

Save it to your Desktop.

Left click it to sleep.
Press power button to come out of sleep.

I have tested it on my computer & it works for me. :)

Thanks David for helping out, I really appreciate it!

It comes close, but not quite what I am looking for.

I had already tried creating two desktop shortcuts with the following code:

C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState
C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Sleep


Your code had the exact same effect as the code above.

Namely, when the code is run, the tablet does turn off immediately, but two things happen after that which are not desired.

1. When the tablet turns off a white light comes on briefly at the top of the tablet. When this happens I know it's a bad sign. (When I press the power button on the tablet to turn it off, the light does not come on).
When the tablet does a complete shutdown this white light comes on as well.

2. When I press the power button to turn the tablet back on, it goes through *half* of the boot procedure.
The manufacturer logo is presented and a moving circle shows below it. (This is not desired)
No screen lock or login screen shows (as I have disabled them).

A full boot procedure takes even longer and gives the following:
- same light blinks at top, but several times
- welcome screen presented
- then desktop arrives

What I am looking for is a desktop shortcut that will perform *exactly* the same way as when I press the power button on the tablet.
That is; the machine turns off *immediately*, there is no flashing light (a bad sign).

The acid test comes when I press the power button again. If it went into sleep mode correctly, when the button is pressed the screen will turn on immediately and I will see the desktop immediately.

I hope this is clear. :)

Sleep works in this way.
The system stays powered on in a very very low power state
The power light will stay on and blink signifying that it is in sleep mode, this is not a bad thing, it's the way it works.

Hibernate - will shut the system down and load everything in RAM to the hiberfile.sys file
When you power it on, will go through a half boot and load everything from the hiberfile back into RAM
No lights should be on.


Carefully read the link that Brink posted, it is what you are looking for.

Thanks Tepid for helping out!

I want to first assure you that I am doing a ton of research on this while I await answers on this forum!

There is some confusion on your part concerning the light that I mentioned.

I am using a Dell Venue Pro 8.
When the power button is pressed on the side of the unit, it puts the unit into sleep mode.
It immediately goes into sleep mode and NO light appears at the top of the unit.

The light is next to the camera on the top face of the unit. This is NOT a typical power type of light that flashes when a computer goes into sleep/hibernation. It is *completely* different.

Not seeing the light is a GOOD thing. It tells me it is going into proper sleep mode.

When I use the code I described earlier, the tablet is actually going into hibernation mode and the light flashes once before going into hibernation. It is a bad thing. As soon as I see it flash (it only flashes once for a split second) I know that when I hit the power button the unit will come back from *hibernation* mode, not sleep mode. This takes much more time.

I hope this is clear now.

I read Brink's post carefully. Unfortunately it does not work on my tablet.

Thanks Brink.
I hope that ultimately you will be able to help me solve my problem.

I know you have lots of experience with programming etc.

The link you gave is four years old and the commands are different on different systems.

For example, at the top of the page you state:
Set your Start Menu power button to Sleep. (see screenshot below)

The screenshot you gave has Taskbar and Start Menu Properties and below that:
Taskbar / Start Menu/ Toolbars

Unfortunately on my Dell Venue Pro 8 (Win 8.1)
there is no Start Menu there, just Taskbar / Toolbars

This is just one example of where things are different.
Various sleep commands that you gave also did not work as expected on my system.

OK I really believe I am on my way to a solution. I just need a tiny bit of expert help here, that's all.

Can someone please tell me the command line code that I can place into a desktop shortcut that will result in the same thing as if I went into:

Settings/Power and pressed Sleep.
That's all I need!!!

I have desktop shortcuts with command lines to:
-shutdown my computer
-put it into hibernation
-restart my computer

All I need is one that will do the same as if I did a Settings/Power/Sleep

Surely there must be a command for this?

(Please bear in mind that I have already tried the standard command code as outlined earlier in this post, which didn't work).

The problem with a sleep shortcut is that if you have hibernate enable, the sleep shortcut will hibernate instead of sleep. You'll have to have hibernate disabled to have a sleep shortcut. :(



In case you didn't know, you could also use the WIN+X menu for all these power options.

Thanks Brink.
re: having to disbale/enable hibernate etc.
Been there, done that. :(

Disabling hibernate is NOT the solution, unfortunately. I tried it many times this evening.

With hibernate disabled, running the code to put the tablet to sleep (code earlier in my post) does NOTHING.
With hibernate enabled, running the code to put the tablet to sleep (code earlier in my post) puts the tablet in hibernation. :(

The Win+X menu is not an option for me. :(
I am using a Dell Venue Pro 8. There is no keyboard with the device (which is why I bought it).

Thanks again for trying!

The command below works for me to put the computer to sleep, but of course hibernate has to be disabled for it to sleep and not hibernate.

rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Sleep

Thanks for helping again Brink.

As I mentioned before, I have already tried this and it doesn't work on my system (Dell Venue Pro 8).
And yes, I disabled hibernate before trying to put it into sleep with the above command.

Thanks David for helping out again.

I followed your instructions as best I could but it didn't help.


Unfortunately I don't have the power options that you have.

My tablet has two power plans:
1. Balanced
2. Dell

My advanced settings for each power plan are quite different than yours.

I don't have:
-Allow hybrid sleep
-Hibernate after never
-Allow wake timers
etc.

I tried to match your settings as best I could.
But I don't think this is the problem.

When I ran the batch file, it behaved exactly the same as when I entered the same code for a desktop shortcut.
That is, the unit goes into hibernation mode, not sleep mode.
This is despite the code telling it to disable hibernation and then re-enable it. :(
