Acronis True Image 2011 sleep/standby post command question

Hi
Would someone be able to tell me step by step instructions on how to set up TI 2011 so that when it has finished its back up task it will return to Hybrid Sleep mode.

i know it goes in the post command box but dont know what to type in there and also what to put in the other boxes!!

I just cant seem to get it right

Thanks

Pete

You can try this command:
C:\Windows\System32\psshutdown.exe -d -t 00
for me this command did sleep the PC using a CMD window.

I also found this command
rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState
in tutorial Sleep Shortcut - Create
for me, this command did a hibernate, and i use Hybrid sleep...

I tried these from "Run..." on the Start Orb, not Acronis.

hope this helps

Thanks i cant get the first one to work, maybe its because im using windows 7 64 bit

The second one works as its supposed to but when i try nd set it up in Acronis it just brings up a shutdown box and then just sits there!!

Any further help would be great.

Are you logged in with an Admin account when you are running the Acronis backup (and testing this) ?

I tested this on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, so i don't think 64 bit is an issue.
Does it give any kind of error message?

I wondered how Acronis would work with these commands...

Can you search your C: drive for "psshutdown.exe" (without the quotes)?

I have this program in "C:\windows\system32", and i don't think i ever did anything special to put it there...

For whatever reason, you may have the program somewhere else, or not at all...

Hi
Here is where i found it.....

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

Then try changing this command
C:\Windows\System32\psshutdown.exe -d -t 00

to this command
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\SysinternalsSuite\psshutdown -d -t 00

and see if that runs...
if that doesn't run, change "psshutdown" to "psshutdown.exe"

You might have your explorer options set to hide files, and that's why you don't see this program anywhere else...

Ok , if i put this

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\SysinternalsSuite\psshutdown.exe -d -t 00

in a CMD prompt it still doesn't work, yet if i type it into a run command it works fine?

Does this sound right?
