WoW X64-Need command

Discussion in 'Windows 64 Bit' started by Sam Steinhauser, Feb 16, 2008.

  1. I just moved to Vista X64 Ultimate and I and totally thrilled compared to my
    past trials witn XP X64. Everything works great. Well a couple of USB devices
    are not up to speed but I have found a work around.

    My MS 6000 keyboard has a button set by default to "Lock Systam." About a
    year ago someone in the forums gave me a command I put in that made this
    button put my system to sleep and I didn't write it down or manage to save it
    as I did a clean install. I know when you click the sleep icon it just
    executes a simple command. What is it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Sam

  3. Thank you very much. I will try this. I had a simple command before but if
    this works then I'm happy. Sometimes I have to leave my system for several
    hours and I like to force it into standby without mousing around. This way I
    can just hit a key and wala done!

    Thanks again,

    Sam

  4. Couldn't find anything that was a single command for sleep. Hibernate? No
    problem, the built in shutdown command does that. (shutdown /h).

  5. Alt+F4 displays the Shutdown dialog box in which the default option is
    Sleep.

  6. 1.) ONLY if Windows Explorer currently has the focus. If a program window
    has the focus, it will try to close that window.
    2.) The OP wanted a command that could be attached to a button on his
    multibuttoned keyboard.

  7. I got 'Access Denied" when I tried to run psshutdown -d. I can run it as
    admin but putting a command into my MS 6000 keyboard is beyind me now.
    There is some simple executable that runs when the little orange button that
    looks like an off button in the Start Menu is clicked. Why oh why didn't I
    save it.
