    How do I: run a application before standby/after resume

    Hi,

    I looked at my streetdeck install and found the following folders to automatically run applications during specific system events:

    Exit
    Launch
    Resume
    ExternalApps

    I am trying to run a script to disabl my USB devices when I enter standby... i only want to run it when my system goes into Standby... not everytime I exit streetdeck

    Can streetdeck do this? and if so.. which folder do I need to put my batch file in?

    I don't think StreetDeck itself can.
    However DEVCON can. It's a free tool by MS.
    If SD's scripting won' allow you to run a command like only on entering standby, you can use AutoIT to achieve what you're looking for.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Just create a shortcut to the script or devcon or whatever you want to launch and put it in the SleepWait folder. It will only run when going into a suspend state.
