About FRSPCHibernate

FRSPCHibernate is a command-line utility that causes your computer to hibernate.

Just what is the Windows "hibernate" feature? When you physically turn off the computer, the content of the RAM memory will be lost, and all of the internal components will get no power. What hibernate does, is it saves the content in the RAM memory to a temporary file on your computer's primary disk drive, and only then turns off the power to your computer's components. The file is usually saved to "C:\hiberfil.sys". Later, when you turn the computer back on, instead of going through its normal boot-up process, it reloads the content in the temporary file back into the RAM memory, putting you back exactly where you were before.

FRSPCHibernate does that without all of the clicking and confirming that Windows makes you do when you try to shut down your computer. FRSPCHibernate calls the exact same system function that Windows itself uses.

The advantage of shutting down via the hibernate method is that you don't have to restart all of your software applications again, and reload all of their data files again. Theoretically, you don't even have to save your modified documents, because their changed content will be in the RAM memory. Of course, we would always recommend saving your data, just in case.

Using FRSPCHibernate

FRSPCHibernate displays no user interface. This is done on purpose, so that you can use it within a .bat file or other scripting file, to trigger the computer to be shut down after your script does some work. Or, simply double-click on the application's icon on the Windows Desktop, if you had the installation program create a shortcut for you there.

To use FRSPCHibernate in a Windows command-line batch file (e.g. "myscript.bat"), do the following:

CALL C:\FRS\FRSPCHibernate\FRSPCHibernate.exe

That's all! An example usage might be that you write a .bat script that makes a back-up copy of all of your data files that you changed that day. At the end of that script, you launch FRSPCHibernate. Now, when you are done using your computer for the day, you double-click on that .bat file, and walk away from your computer. The batch file will then make a back-up copy of the files, and then shut down your computer when it is all done. You don't have to sit there and wait for it.
