How to automatically shutdown XP after it goes to standby?
Hello and Happy New Year,
I am building a carputer using my laptop. To make the long story short I like how easily the computer goes into standby and comes out of it once a pulse is initiated at the power switch. But I would like to have it shutdown after a certain amount of time when it is on standby. I know in XP's power options I can set a predetermined time for it to go into hibernation after it goes to standby. But I do not see the point to have it hibernate all night in the car wasting the laptop's battery juice when the boot up times are almost the same as the ones coming from hibernation. A shutdown option with time settings is not displayed in power options, so my choices are limited to standby and hibernate.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
