powercfg Flashes for a sec and then is gone? Help!

When ever I type powercfg -availablesleepstates into the searchbar area when you press the start button, it flashes for a millisecond and then dissappears. I'm trying to see my available sleep states for my computer but I can't seem to have on my screen long enough to read it.

Help!

Hello kevlepp, welcome to Seven Forums!


As Rich suggested, put that same command in a command window.
