Windows 7: Acronis True Image 2011 sleep/standby post command question

try these settings.

Command:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\SysinternalsSuite\psshutdown.exe

Working directory - leave this blank

Arguments:
-d -t 00


You may even be able to put the Arguments in the Command so the only box you would use is the Command with:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\SysinternalsSuite\psshutdown.exe -d -t 00

Either way you should be able to click "Test Command" to see if it works without running the backup...

Hi Mate

not good news, the only way i could get it to do anything was setting it up like below.


But although it would allow me to test the command it didn't actually do anything, even after running a back up :-(

I tested this on a Win7 32bit system logged in with "ADMIN" and it worked for me.
I'm using Acronis TI 2009.

The screen print below is what I see after pushing "Test command" and waking up the PC.

It also worked when I ran the backup - the PC went to sleep.

I'm not sure why it doesn't work for you if you use the command:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\SysinternalsSuite\psshutdown.exe

Thanks for all your help & patience David, i have now managed to get it running, had to use a slightly different set up to yours but wouldn't have been able to do it without your help.

Cheers Pete

Hi David

Im hoping you are still watching this thread, just one more quick question, if i change the argument from -d -t 00 to -d -02 will that mean that the pc will shut down 2 minutes after it completes the task??

Thanks Pete

Hi Peter,

If you want to delay the shutdown by 2 minutes (120 seconds),
i think you need to change the argument from -d -t 00 to -d -t 120

here is the documentation i found for the "-t" option

Countdown in seconds until the shutdown (default: 20 seconds) or the time of shutdown (in 24 hour notation)

give that a try...
