eskro Posted November 21, 2011 Report Share Posted November 21, 2011 How to make your PC SLEEP/WAKE by pressing a button on your Remote? (Windows Only) if you want to make your PC SLEEP/WAKE using a button on your remote, this is easy,,, first disable the hibernate feature on your PC 1. type CMD in Start menu search box area and then hit Ctrl + Shift + Enter 2. try/type either of these 2 commands here and then hit enter: powercfg /hibernate off or powercfg -h off 3. hibernate should be OFF now... then follow these steps to create a windows shortcut that would make your HTPC sleep when double-clicking on it A ) Right click on a empty area on desktop, and click on New and Shortcut. B ) Type rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState into the location area, and click on the Next button C ) Type Sleep for the name, and click on the Finish button (You can name this anything you would like though) Now Important, if you want to move your shortcut elsewhere, do it now! Ok so, once moved to where you want it, right-click on it, then assign a keyboard shortcut to it, example, CTRL + ALT + S refer here if you have problems doing so http://thecustomizew...with-windows-7/ then, using FLIRC's GUI, select the FULL KEYBOARD controller for a sec, click on CTRL + ALT + S, so that those 3 keys appear in green on your screen and then record this key combination to your desired button on your remote... Now, if all goes well, when you'll press that recorded button on your remote, it'll emulate like if u would press CTRL + ALT + S on your keyboard and this means windows will go to SLEEP!! Night Night :) 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
