DONE: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart (Boot Snooze)

<< < (10/34) > >>

For instance, when I leave home in the morning, I put my XP desktop in hibernation, it wakes up just before I get home.  This morning, I had a huge download to perform, and had either to stop it and hibernate OR to leave it running.  With BootSnooze, I could have asked for a reboot/hibernate in 3 hours time, then, when coming home, my PC would just resume from hibernation and the download would have been complete.-MerleOne (February 03, 2010, 07:49 AM)

Ah, I gotcha.  Sure, I'll add it in.   :)

Cool.  Let's come up with a name for this and I'll package it up as a regular Skwire Empire application.

Off To Sleep?

I really like that name!!
Or, perhaps, "Off to Snooze"

OK testing version and the buttons still don't show the whole text.

FYI the visual style I am using is Tener VS

Perhaps you could change the UI so that the label reads "Restart then..." and the buttons simply say Hibernate and Standby? But this may be bad user interface practice - I don't know!

As for Hibernation - it is enabled and works just fine if I do it manually. My suspicion is that Defence+ (part of Comodo Firewall) is preventing Boot Snooze from operating correctly by preventing some registry keys being created or something. I shall experiment with the firewall down / setting BS as a trusted app.

Thanks for the effort you are putting in to this :)

UPDATE: Added Boot Snooze as a trusted app, and also tried taking down the firewall, and still no Hibernation :(

Update 2: Tried with Standby - same result (reboots, message box appears with countdown, click the button to standby, but nothing happens).

Using WinXP SP3 (custom install - somewhat slimmed down - perhaps something important for Boot Snooze is missing?)

For hibernation to work, your computer must have "Enable hibernation" already checked under your Control Panel, Power Options, Hibernate tab.  Is this enabled?  If so, which OS are you using?

Also, it might be resolved by means of "powercfg -h on" command execution in the "Boot Snooze" - just for user convinience.

Ah, very nice.  Thanks for the heads up.
