Put computer in standby and wake computer RRS feed

  • Question





    I am looking for a way to put the computer in standby and wake up after a given time. I'm making a simple Windows program based on System Forms and I'm using the Forms Timer to execute specific code at a given interval.

    Now I want to implement that when the interval is greater than i.e. 3 hours, the computer is set to standby and wakes up after waiting the 3 hours. The inteval resolution is in minutes, so no great accuracy needed.


    Questions in short:

    What to use to put computer in standby?

    What to use to wake computer out off standy?

    What is the influence of the standby on the used Forms Timer?



    Thanks in advance,

    Geert S.
