About FRSPCSleep

FRSPCSleep is a command-line utility that causes your computer to go to sleep.

Just what is the Windows "sleep" 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 the sleep mode does, is it turns off most of the internal components of your computer, except for the RAM memory and whatever else is necessary to keep your RAM memory "alive". So, while it significantly reduces the amount of power that the computer uses while it is in sleep mode, you don't loose anything that you are currently working on. Later, when you turn the computer back on, instead of going through its normal boot-up process, the computer simply powers on all the internal components, and you are exactly back where you left everything. This makes getting back to work extremely fast, while still saving some electricity.

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

The big warning about the sleep mode of Windows is that, everything works fine for as long as your computer has some power available. However, if your PC is in this sleep mode and the power to your house or office is only briefly interrupted, you will loose all the content that your computer had in its RAM memory (unless you have an uninterruptable power supply, UPS, to which your computer is attached). So, our recommendation is that if you are going to put your computer into this sleep mode, go ahead and save all of your data files first, just to be on the safe side, and only then put it into the sleep mode (or use FRSPCSleep).

Using FRSPCSleep

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

CALL C:\FRS\FRSPCSleep\FRSPCSleep.exe

That's all! An example usage might be that you are getting ready to go to lunch. You want to run some command-line batch file or script that does some lengthy work, but when it is done, you want it to log you out. FRSPCSleep makes that possible.
