Windows 7: Turn Sleep/Hibernate mode into Shutdown?

Turn Sleep/Hibernate mode into Shutdown?

Hi all,

For about a year and a half now i have owned a htpc based on a DFI P55-T36 board.
Everything is running great and i'm very content ever since i switched to XBMC software etc. etc.

There's just one problem for me...
No matter what i do, Sleep mode will not work correctly with this machine.

Also...i have recently purchased a Ortek VRC-1100 remote which works very well with MCE and XBMC out of the box.
This remote has a power button which will send the keyboard command to put the machine to sleep (i believe its Win + S?).

Anyway, in both of these cases i would very much like to Shutdown the PC rather then use Sleep mode at all.

Is there any way to disable sleep mode entirely in Windows 7?

So whenever a sleep mode command is sent, the PC will simply shutdown?

That would be in your Power managment settings you set it to NEVER it will not go to sleep or Hibernate

Goodluck

Can you program the remote to send a Shut down command instead?

Goodluck
Unfortunatly that doesn't seem to change anything.
When i send the sleep command now, the PC will still go to sleep mode.

I'm affraid not. Since its sending a common windows shortcut combination it can't be captured by anything else.
