    So his program is almost there, but not quite. It let's your system wake up from standby at a specific time (say, 12:00am) then send it into hibernation... If somehow there was a way to have the time set to wakeup be an hour after system goes into standby for hibernation (through some macro that happens on standby), then have it reset if it's woke up prior to this time (again through some kind of macro), then it would work... Is there anywhere you think I can go to find out how to do this?

    VB Code

    haven't tried it, but a quick google search of "vb.net restore from hibernate" yielded quite a few results...

    Well, I'm not really looking to restore from hibernate... I want to restore from a sleep state to go into hibernation...

    I'm testing a little program I just wrote for this. So far so good.

    you can either have an app set a wake up event or use the task scheduler. but if you just want to sleep X amount of time then hibernate, i thought we had a thread about that a while ago in which some people claimed it's automagically done using the power properties in XP?

    I've messed with the settings a lot on my home PC/Car PC and never got it to work. Still very interested if you figure something out Frodo...
