    Hi Thunderstick. Trying to make it work with my Tablet using Windows 7. It works perfectly, but when it reboots using battery, I'm getting the autoit error described above. Any solution to that?

    If I start it on ac power, the program runs fine after booting.

    Thanks.

    Great software but...

    How do I get my laptop to come back out of standby when I turn my ignition back on? Windows xp will auto standby or hibernate by itself without ant extra software when ac power is cut, problem is trying to get the laptop to auto come out of standby, any idea's for that?

    He needs this at the of his autoit script:

    Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)

    Which basically will mean that he is just using vars w/o declaring it first and if its not previously used when called on, is when you end up with this message.

    Doing proper coding, means you declare all variable before you use them, else.....

    Well it sure shutsdown. Turn off power - laptop starts shutting down. But now riderunner doesn't resume. Solutions?

    Oh well, I guess this thread is old, and the code has vanished, and I'm talking to myself, but I've had a go at doing what I need with a python script. Its a hack, but works for me, use at your own peril.
    Attached file should have a .py extension.
    Edit the file, to suit your requirements, with a code editor such as scite or notepad.

    Edit: Seems the attachments on other posts have appeared again. Seems like I picked good time to visit this site!

    Edit: Updated to version 0.2 so that power must be off for a defined period of time before shutdown commences. This should avoid shutting down on momentarty power interuptions such as caused by engine cranking etc
