    Sleep Mode Shortcut in Vista 64

    I want to use Sleep Mode with a single shortcut on my desktop.


    How to make a SLEEP mode shortcut on your desktop:

    Right click your Desktop, hover your mouse over NEW and then click Shortcut

    Paste this into the destination box

    %windir%\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState

    Click Next

    Rename it SLEEP

    Click Finish

    This will now work, but if you'd like a new icon for it, Right Click it, choose
    Properties and Change Icon and pick one from

    %SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll


    Whack it onto your desktop and use it to save elctricity

    Re: Sleep Mode Shortcut in Vista 64

    Pity this computer crashes every now and then when resuming from sleep. I think I've narrowed it down to a youtube video being open in Firefox that causes it for some reason...
