put windows7 to sleep

heres a trick i just put together.

i’ve upgraded¬† a couple of my systems to windows7, i like it. The sleep mode seems to work pretty well. Unfortunately i’ve installed something that keeps it awake. To force it to sleep automatically¬† i’ve created a simple script sleep.bat:

powercfg -h off
rundll32 powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState

this will turn off hibernation and make your system sleep (otherwise it would hibernate, taking longer). i set up a scheduled task to call this daily at midnight (pick your own time) so if anyone else has been using the computer its forced into a sleep mode on a daily basis.
