Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

Any way to implement the sleep feature?

Yes there is. Use the /t option to set the time delay in seconds.

/t xxx Set the time-out period before shutdown to xxx seconds.
The valid range is 0-315360000 (10 years), with a default
of 30 seconds.

ex: /t 86400 (this is one day)

To get more information, open a CMD window and type "shutdown.exe /?",
without quotes, to get more options.

To actually sleep, you will have to use a wrapper application or do some further research on the /d option. It has a vague description. Happy coding.
