    Hey there,
    I'm not sure if this is the right forum to ask about this sought of thing, if it's in the wrong place can you please tell which and let me know where it should go.

    I have friend who wants to run his Vista Home Prem computer without Hybernation or Light sleep mode, when I went to show him how, (right click blank desktop, Personalise, screensaver, etc) he asked is there an easier way?

    Hmm, I did some searching and found a command line tool to turn off hybernation, powercfg -H. However I cannot find a similar commant line tool to turn off Light Sleep Mode.

    My idea was to create a .bat file to run from the desktop to switch off both Hybernation and Sleep mode, I have even found a commant line tool to bypass Run As Administrator. http://int3.de/download/Elevate.zip.

    The next step is to use Vista's IEXPLORE to create an executable zip file, and it worked for turning off hybernation, but not the sleep mode. I would appreciate any idea's or help, thanks ptech

      I don't know of any programs off-hand,,but Marko or JIm may have better luck. Has your friend looked into a program called"caffine"???? Works for me when I need it. https://freewarebb.com/files/file/10179-caffeine/

        Hey ptech - I really don't understand why you would need software in order to do something which is so easy and readily available via the OS's own settings/options.

        Start>Control Panel>Power Options>Change plan settings>Change advanced power settings>Sleep.

        Expand the Sleep option and change settings for Sleep, Hybrid Sleep, and Hibernate to suit. It's a 10 second job!

            I'd favour tweaking the options as well Jim ...

              Hey there, thanks for your replies, my friend just wants to do one or two clicks with the mouse and have job done, with Vista you have to go further into the options to set the whole of Windows and he didn't want to do that.
              So I thought that if there was a program that could change all Windows settings with just a double click and a reboot, it would make life easier for him or anyone who wasn't too sure about changing hybernation or sleep mode settings for all users of a Vista computer.
              Claw, thanks for the info on "Caffine", I've had a quick look and it looks prommising.
              Oh, and something else I got wrong, the correct command for creating an executible containing multiple files is "IExpress" sorry for the mixup.

                His other option was to have me change the settings everytime he needed to have them done, all OK if I have time.
