How can I make a computer - sleep with a python script?
It has to be sleep not hibernate or anything else.
I have tried to use
You can use
import os os.system("rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,1,0")
If this command doesn't work for you (it actually puts your comp. in hibernation mode) you will need to turn hibernation off:
Powercfg -H OFF
To turn hibernation mode back on:
Powercfg -H ON
Alternatively, you can also use:
Rundll32.exe Powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Sleep
If you don't want to turn hibernation off just to run a command, you can use psshutdown as an alternative
C:\Windows\System32\psshutdown.exe -d -t 0
As for what
os.system does, straight from the documentation:
Execute the command (a string) in a subshell.
An additional note:
You will need to have administrator permissions to run Powercfg -H *
