Greetings Fellow Monks!
In a nutshell, I would like to automate placing Windows, in the case Win2000, into standby. The code I have assembled
below is for automatic rebooting which works cleanly including a warning window of impending shutdown. I put this in the scheduler for unattended auto rebooting of a remote computer.
Win32::InitiateSystemShutdown( '', "\nWARNING\!\!\n\nSystem is about t
+o Reboot\!\n\(The system will reboot in 30 seconds.\)", 30, 1, 1 );
This is what I would call it's "countermeasure" (in case you want to abort a reboot that is about to occur:
I want to create something simliar to the first script shown above except it simply puts the computer in standby or sleep mode. I did a little digging but didn't find anything that was quite obvious right off the bat. Perhaps, maybe this falls into the realm of Windows Scripting, which I am not all that familiar with, but I am willing to adapt; hoping for a perl solution. Any help/insight that can be provided will great!
Thank you in advance for your help and wisdom in this matter!
