Windows 7: Hibernate using monitor power

Hibernate using monitor power

Hi,
ive got my system to go into hibernation using s3 acpi, and usb remote. also it will come out of hibernation using the remote and or usb keyboard.
My system is used as a htpc and was wondering is there a way to hibernate the system with the power button of my tv (monitor) ie:- when monitor isnt detected.is there a setting im missing.
basicly i have a plasma tv and onkyo 607 receiver. connected via vierra link. so when i power the tv down the receiver powers down . now it would be fantastic if it put the htpc into hibernation also..

if its not possible then surly it should be..



hope you understand

This is probably possible using the task scheduler, but I honestly can't think as to how exactly you would rig it.
Perhaps someone else does.

Thanks for the reply. i had a look and cant really see how i would trigger hibernate. nothing really in the trigger/hardware list.

hopefully i sort this.. then i will have a few people to say i told you so... lol

thanks again

what you would wind up doing is more than likely creating a shortcut for the hibernate then point the task to it.
The problem in this for me is figuring out how to have it triggered by the criteria you have laid out.
Shutdown, restart, or hibernate your computer on a schedule

shortcut?mmm tell me more .. this would be the action (obviously) now i was wondering about that also.. but i cant seem to figure out what the trigger would be... monitor standby isnt there..lol
if only it was that easy..
ull have to excuse me im not that well up on task schedullar, i get the gist though.

thanks

the short cut isnt a problem, ive done that ... i just need the trigger ov my tv/monitor going into stand by... if i switch off the tv i get sound that a device has been removed.. same when i switch on... ive looked in events and cannot see what had changed... ive found display and display switch... in sourses

this must be possible...

I know you can configure log event - system - display as a trigger
but I do not know the id of the event.

By this though it would appear a separate one could be created to wake it when the display is powered on too.

We just need someone that knows the id for you.
