Latest version...includes ability to hibernate or standby on next restart.  Countdown timer should work more reliably than previous version.

v1.0.1 - 2010-02-01
    * Boot Snooze now uses the RunOnce registry key.  (Thanks, wr975 & f0dder)


3252  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart on: January 30, 2010, 10:59:43 AM
possible ways to handle it:
1) options.  i don't mind an options file.
2) two exes, hiber-restart, sleep-restart
3) when you launch it with no commandline parameters it would show buttons for: "Restart then Hibernate","Restart then Sleep","Cancel"; you could also pass -rh or -rs as commandline option to specify a choice to take automatically.

Hahaha...I'd actually thought of #2 and #3 as well and had already written code to handle it like #3.  Let me finish it up...
3253  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart on: January 30, 2010, 10:46:13 AM
I could easily do options like this but saving any options would necessitate saving them to a file.  Is anybody averse to this?  The reason I ask is that I was trying to keep snack completely self-contained.

New version has a hibernate countdown timer on it.  Please re-download.

I've been meaning to reply to migounanounet's post.  Migounanounet, I really appreciate the feedback and feature suggestion but I have no plans to implement any sort of scheduler in Anuran.  Apologies.
3256  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart on: January 29, 2010, 03:35:24 PM
i think that the timer should show on screen the moment the reboot script begins, even if that means a 10 minute countdown.  the aim is to show the user what is going to happen, and let them cancel.  if they are walking away they wont care what is on screen.

Yes, I plan to add this once I get some more testing in.
3257  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart on: January 29, 2010, 03:23:38 PM
Here's an AHK prototype:
I wouldn't launch the "10 mins wait then hibernate" command via Autostart but the "runonce" registry setting (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/137367)
The "10 mins wait" command should also check if the system is idle and/or do a "10 seconds to hibernate" countdown.

I'd prefer not to muck about in a user's registry if at all possible.  However, if the startup folder method proves to be a problem, I'll go that route.  The countdown timer can come later since I envisioned this as an app that the user will launch knowing he/she is walking away from their computer for an extended length of time.

3258  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart on: January 29, 2010, 02:03:59 PM
i think the danger here is of something going wrong with the post-restart process, and getting into a cycle of never ending reboots.
one way to solve this is when the startup shortcut is run, it should give a countdown to hibernate, with button to cancel+remove shortcut; and if the program ever can't remove the shortcut for some reason it needs to report this and tell user what to do.

Well, it would only ever reboot one time....no loop.  However, your concern about not being able to delete the shortcut is valid and can be handled.

remember that you will want to give the pc some amount of time after the reboot to finish the startup process, otherwise it may not hibernate nicely.

That's why I mentioned a ten-minute delay in my previous post.  I think that ought to be enough, eh?
3259  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart on: January 29, 2010, 01:47:20 PM
This would be, I think, a piece of cake to write.  I'm thinking the following logic:

1) Instead of using the normal Windows shutdown, you would run my executable.
2) My executable would insert a shortcut into the computer's startup folder and reboot the computer.
3) After rebooting and waiting, say, ten minutes to allow for a full bootup, the startup shortcut would be removed and the computer would be put into hibernation.

Thoughts?

I tried it today and it works fine on my Win 2k PC at work (although the systray icons look slightly different). Now I have it at home and at work!

Great to hear; thanks for the report.  You can apply this patch on your 2k system to get them looking more similar:

Thanks, it works.  I forgot to mention that Trout is a *great* player.
There is something missing though: the total duration of all files in the playlist.

Thanks for the compliment and feedback.  Here you go:

v1.0.3 build 272 - 2010-01-25
    + Added playlist's total time (in hh:mm:ss format) to the statusbar.  (Thanks, mohamedm)

No taller, just longer.  I was thinking the seekbar length would be double that of the volume.
3265  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2009 / Re: NANY 2009 Release: Trout (audio player) on: January 24, 2010, 10:02:27 AM
I agree that a seekbar ought to be there.  What does everybody think about me just adding a seekbar to each of the Minibars?  It would make them slightly longer, of course.

I busted out my Win2k install discs and am installing them in a VM as we speak.  I'll let you know if I find anything amiss.
3269  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2010 / Re: NANY 2010 Release: Anuran on: January 23, 2010, 07:15:57 AM
Yes, I checked that the folder and files are all there. I tried starting it a couple of times, and it "runs", although it never pops up by itself, and can't be configured (same error pops up when I try). I can see the space where it should be in the systray, and the context menu is active when I right-click on the vacant spot in the systray. I tried the latest version but no change. My system is Windows 2000 Pro SP 4.

Does the same error happen with the latest Anuran?  I added some code a few version back that tried to address the tray icon issue in Win2k.  Also, you say the tray menu does appear.  Does anything happen when you choose Options from the menu?
3270  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: AHK Help on: January 22, 2010, 05:08:58 PM
Great.  Also, you can use the "% " to force an expression on a line by itself.  This can be very handy when you want to use a ternary operator. 

Example:

Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. ; First method.
  2.  
  3. If ( a < b )
  4. {
  5.    c := 1
  6. }
  7. {
  8.    c := 2
  9. }
  10.  
  11. ; One-line shorthand method to accomplish the same as above.
  12. ; This uses a forced expression and a ternary operator.
  13.  
  14. % ( a < b ) ? ( c := 1 ) : ( c := 2 )
3271  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: AHK Help on: January 22, 2010, 04:55:03 PM
I agree that it's rather confusing at first but easy (and flexible) once you get the hang of it.  Yes, the "% " combo does force an expression but only for that "comma section" of the command you're using.  In other words, each "comma section" of a command is separate from the others.  Example:

Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. FileSelectFile, _SourceFileName, 3, % _InputDirectory, "Select the file to be converted.", "Adobe PDF (*.pdf)"
  2.            ; ^
  3.            ; |                    ^----------------^
  4.            ; |                            | Third "comma section" of the command.  Since we want to use the contents of
  5.            ; |                            | a variable, we can use either method, "% _InputDirectory" or %_InputDirectory%
  6.            ; |
  7.            ; |                 ^^
  8.            ; |                  | Second "comma section" of the command.
  9.            ; |
  10.            ; |^--------------^
  11.            ; |       | First "comma section" of the command.  No % used since we're declaring a variable name to store the outputted value.
  12.            ; |
  13.            ; |
  14.            ; | Note that comma I put in.  It doesn't NEED to be there but it's a good habit to get into.

Clear as mud now?   cheesy

Currently, Anuran has to be running at the time of scheduled archive.  In other words, if your computer is off or hibernated, it won't archive.

Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. FileSelectFile % _SourceFileName, 3, _InputDirectory, "Select the file to be converted.", "Adobe PDF (*.pdf)" ; Your original
  2.             ; -----------------
  3.             ; This is the NAME of the variable to STORE the output path in.
  4.             ; You don't use "%" at all for this since you're simply
  5.             ; declaring the name of the variable.
  6.  
  7. FileSelectFile % _SourceFileName, 3, _InputDirectory, "Select the file to be converted.", "Adobe PDF (*.pdf)" ; Your original
  8.                                   ; ---------------
  9.                                   ; This is where you want to use the CONTENTS of a variable so this is where
  10.                                   ; you should use "% _InputDirectory" or "%_InputDirectory%" (minus quotes).
  11.  
  12. FileSelectFile _SourceFileName, 3, % _InputDirectory, "Select the file to be converted.", "Adobe PDF (*.pdf)" ; One correct way.
  13. FileSelectFile _SourceFileName, 3, %_InputDirectory%, "Select the file to be converted.", "Adobe PDF (*.pdf)" ; Another correct way.
                                       
Does that help to explain things?
