Are you talking about something like these?

[1] Sleeping a computer via batch file in Windows 7.
[2] Schedule Windows to Sleep and Wake Automatically.

Hi

There are a number of sleep states, 5 i believe, which act slighly differently. S3 is the initial set-up
These can set either in Bios, if available, or via your power options
(beware these can either be managed by either your OEM software or MS's power options)

And finally theres hibernation

Sleep States - See Available Sleep States

Hibernate - Enable or Disable

it means after changing the power options through command prompt we need to re-start system to reflect those changes. Here re-start need to be avoided.
