  • Sleeper V1.3 Build 1001

    I have come across this software which i beleive it will help with my automating of my PC as a Personal Video Recorder (PVR) due to the wakeup in number of seconds feature.

    What i need to understand is the Command Line syntax as it does not seem to work e.g.

    "F:\C DRIVE\Download\_PassMark Sleeper\Sleeper.exe" sleeper S3 D 60

    or is it

    "F:\C DRIVE\Download\_PassMark Sleeper\Sleeper.exe" S3 D 60

    These two lines are taken from shortcut settings. Also when i add the same syntax to my VB6 programme e.g.
    strPVR = "F:\C DRIVE\Download\_PassMark Sleeper\Sleeper.exe sleeper S3 D 60"
    it still does not work.
    Am i doing something wrong???
    Many thanks

    The command line for V1.3 is,

    sleeper.exe -S1 -D 30

    Which means to enter sleep state 1 for 30 seconds.

    but depending on what directory you are in and in you are using a DOS window of some programming language you might need to add inverted comma and a full path and further changes.

    For example,
    "C:\Program files\Sleeper\sleeper.exe" -S1 -D 30

    And in C++ programming,
    "\"C:\\Program files\\Sleeper\\sleeper.exe\" -S1 -D 30"

    We don't do any VB6 programming so we can't help you much in that regards.

    Also in V2 of Sleeper (coming soon) there will be additional command line parameters.

      How many seconds is the maximum?

      Many thanks for your previous reply

      I tried to send a email to but it got returned back to me, unable to send???

      I am using your software to work with my Personal Video Software (PVR), the standby mode S3 by a number of seconds is exactly what I want. The difficulty I have is finding out what is the maximum number of seconds sleeper can except as the PC may need to be in standby mode for over 24 hours if I am away from home??

      Also are you planning to update sleeper? As the ability to run a programme once out of sleep mode would be ideal.

      Many thanks

        The E-Mail support@ E-Mail address has been dropped. It was getting 200+ spam E-mails a day. The new E-mail address is help@

        Entering a 24hour time period should be no problem.

        V2.0 of sleeper is already available and we are planning some additional minor updates at the moment.

        We have made a note of your feature request.
