    mediacar exit screen

    Hola guys.

    I have one simple question (which may not get a simple answer hehe)

    Know the exit screen of mediacar? where it says hibernate, exit, shutdown etc?

    How to include another button "Stand By" and let it perfrom that function?

    Is this something the user can add or does coyote have to implement it himself?

    Maybe if I can just change the reference for Hibernate and let it perform Stand By instead that would be good enough

    That would be something coyote has to add. Maybe replace Reboot with Standby?

    you could try adding a "standby" shortcut to the "launch" section. just add a folder called "standby" in the launch folder, and place the shortcut (instructions below) and a graphic if you choose. i'm not guaranteeing it will work, cause it didn't work on mine, but the shortcut doesn't work at all on mine, so it could just be my computer.

    Right click an open area on the desktop and select New>Shortcut. Enter the code shown below on the Command Line:
    Standby command for Windows 95 or 98:  
    rundll32.exe PowrProf.dll, SetSuspendState (cut and paste recommended)
    Standby command for NT or Windows 2000 or Win 2000 Win2K: 
    C:\WINNT\system32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll, SetSuspendState (cut and paste recommended)
    This code (or the path) may vary for different operating systems. Use the Browse button in the Create Shortcut box to set the exact path. Once the Shortcut has been set up then test it to verify it works by clicking on the desktop shortcut. If it works then assign it to the easy access key of your choice or to an open (unassigned) key.

    Thanks Gutterslide, but the problem is when I run that, it hibernates and doesnt suspend.

    However I've found a workaround, you'll have to look for this file under WinXP:
    E:\WINDOWS\system32\powercfg.cpl and double click on it. Then turn off hibernate.

    After that running
    C:\WINNT\system32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll, SetSuspendState
    from the command line forces the PC to suspend.

    Now all we have to do is edit the skin to say Stand By and that's it
