    V8 Scimitar Can you help me with my problem........

    I've been trying to use devcon/autoit/hibernation trigger to stop a 3 usb mobile broadband modem to allow me to hibernate, but have just found out that it is the modem coms software that is stoping hibernation and not the device itself. If I exit the software, my system will go into and out off hibernation correctly.

    I therefore need to stop this program prior to hibernation.

    The program at present auto-starts with windows boot via the startup folder. Unfortunately, I have to then click a connect box in the software for the modem to go online.

    To shutdown the software I have to click a disconnect box and also confirm a "yes/no" box to disconnect the modem.....then finally stop the program itself.

    Is there a way to, at least, disconnect and shut down the program prior to hibernation so that when I switch off my ignition the M2-ATX can initiate the hibernation.

    PS: I see your from Scotland......I'm over on digital-car.co.uk as well as mp3car.com, with the same name/avatar..........got a Focus too !

    Hi Wizz

    Yes I have seen you around on the other side. I have the same username over there too.

    The only way I can think of right now is to use some scripts to kill the app and start it again. You better test if this is ok because it is a bit of a brutal way to shut down a program and it might not like it.

    For command prompt (DOS) create a bat file with taskkill /im NameOfProgramToEnd.exe
    Create another one with NameOfProgramToStart.exe this will only work in xp pro xp home doesnt have taskkill.

    Put these in hibernate trigger and your done. You could also create an exe to do this in AutoIT if you wanted as per my tutorial just change the commands. This will hide the dos window.


    You could also use Powershell http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserv...l/default.mspx .
    Create a commandlet with kill -name NameOfProgram and another with NameOfProgram again put these in hibernate trigger.
    There is probably a way to do it in VB script as well and you might find a nicer way to close the program instead of killing it but I don’t know what the scripts would be.
    There will also be a way to do it nicely via AutoIt but I would need to experiment. Unfortunately I am two days away from being out the country so I don’t have time at mo.
    I should also say you might have to put the path to the app depending how it is registered to get it to start (not to kill it though).


    Hope this helps.

    no it will just start the app. To do the connect part you would have to either be able to send a switch to the software or if you used AutoIt you can send messages or keystrokes if it will accept them. Dont know about the 3 software but the Vodafone software has a setting to auto connect anyway. Comming to think of it the Voda one if you pull the dongle the software shuts down and when you put it in it auto starts. Trouble is it takes ages to shut down so windows will hang when trying to hibernate. Hmm I will have a play at work tomorow if I get a chance and see if I can spot anything usefull to you.

    I tried an autoit script to shutdown the 3 software, but I get an alert box telling me to disconnect before trying to shutdown.
    After disconnecting and then trying to shutdown I still get another yes/no alert box to confirm shutdown
    I've looked through the program options....there is also nothing to allow auto-connect or anything similar

    Never got a chance to have a look today but it looks like the software is different to vodafone anyway. Look and see if there is a keyboard shortcut to accept the alert box. It might even be as simple as yes is default and you just have to send return. Maybe some of the coders can do a better app for you. The hardware is pretty much all the same so it could be you just need to talk to a common dll.
