Windows 7: another sleep question

another sleep question

I read the tutorial for how to create a hibernate shortcut, but does anyone know how to modify that into sleep? I messed with the values a little, and some put the computer to sleep, but I do not know what I am doing, and thus am liable to cause damage. Can anyone explain the difference values?

Thanks Shawn. Can anyone help me decode the switches at the end of the hibernate shortcut?

You're welcome Jonathan. You can also use the command shutdown.exe -h like in the one below instead as well.
