Possible Feature Request?

Well, many of my builds are going to be mobile robots and some will actually have the PC (my asus mini nettop computer) on board as well as the ezb controller... PCs require much more battery power.. I thought a nice script command to save power is to be able to tell the PC enter sleep mode... I realize I will have to hit the power button to wake it up and ARC... However, having the EZB able to put the pc in sleep mode... say when the robot is low on batteries or when recharging or just having him parked for a while (and not have to wait a few minutes to boot the PC back up and load ARC, file etc) would be a great little feature... Well, for me anyway...

Actually... You can WOL from an android phone. I often turn my office PC this way (from a full shutdown too not just a sleep)

As for going to sleep, ARC can execute applications. Try getting it to run Rundll32.exe Powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Sleep

(If that doesn't work, you can run a shortcut or batch file or even make a very simple AHK application to make it sleep)


Thanks Rich... Easy for you my friend, but I really don't want to go that route as I am not that comfortable messing with my computers exes... (meaning, doing something I really have limited knowledge about)...
