Running back from standby/hibernation program

Hey there,
I want to launch a program every time I come back/sign my computer after the standby/hibernation mode. I only found a possibility to play sounds of a logon each time that this happens, but I can't run programs like that. Is it possible to do it on Vista?

PS: If it isn't, can you send this request apparently simple functionality to the Windows 7 development team?

While the mark's instructions look as if they will work, there is a more elegant way to achieve, using Vista built in Task Scheduler.

To create a task that runs whenever you unlock your profile:
1 open the Task Scheduler [start > Panel > system and Maintenance > administrative tools > Task Scheduler (or just type "Task Scheduler" in the box start search)]. You will need an administrator account/password for access to this.
2. Select "Create a task" to create a new task.
3. a panel with several tabs will open.
4. fill the 'Général' tab to meet your needs.
5. go to the "Triggers" tab and choose "new". Another panel will open. At the top of this Panel, you will see a (see below). Open it and choose ' to unlock the workstation. Then choose if you want this task to run just for your profile or for everyone. Click on 'ok '. (You can find it useful to use the option "Delay task" to delay the task for 15-30 seconds to give your office a chance to load before the program runs.)
6. go to the Actions tab, select 'New', choose 'Run program' and locate the program you want to run.
7. Select the tabs 'Conditions' & 'Settings', respectively and change various settings according to your needs. (Make sure that the "Run on AC Only" option is disabled if you are using a laptop and want the task to run when it is unplugged).
8. click OK to save your new task.
Now, whenever you unlock your profile after the standby or Hibernate mode, your program runs.
If you follow these instructions, but choose "connection to" rather than "To unlock the workstation", your task will run whenever you connect (unlock and logon are not the same thing as the computer is concerned, so keep that in mind).
This may not work if your profile is not protected by a password, but all mine, so I couldn't test it in this situation.
I hope this will satisfy your needs.
Best wishes

  • Satellite M30X-111 wake up from standby/hibernation mode

    People, like many of you, I had the questionable connection DC problem and I solved this at the time of re - solder the wandering joint on the connector for the motherboard.

    Everything was fine with the laptop until yesterday when I tried to get the machine to wake from standby / hibernation if it is when you close the screen) and now all that happens is that the blue light around the power button lights up, the CPU fan runs for about 5 seconds, the HARD drive light flashes once Maybe two times and the DVD briefly climb towers.

    Also nothing happens... the screen is blank and the laptop is actually not from the occasional maelstrom of the fan.

    Is it in any case to perform a reset of some sort to get it to snap it on hibernation? I have read up on this subject on various forums and have tried to start without memory, without the HARD drive and the DVD drive and still no life.

    Any input is appreciated that I need this laptop to spring into life again.

    Thanks in advance



    to wake up the machine, simply remove the battery and the AC and leave the machine for a few hours. After that, it should work again.
    By the way: sometimes it s a good idea to do a biosupdate, because maybe the problem comes from the bios.

    Please give some comments about your success... :)

  • Auto erasing in pro SSD comes from standby/hibernation mod.

    Hallo! Help me)

    I'm on macbook pro 13 "2011 i5. So I bought ssd to upgrade my mac. These are the 128 GB plextor m6pro. I cloned all the disk system ssd. Also I bought optibay, I broke my hard drive cable, so now the whole system works on optibay and ssd (without hard drive).

    I have a serious problem. When I close the macbook and then open after a few minutes my system begins to work is not properly so I click on system reboot and Flash then folder with the question. I like this for 4 times, other times just system opens when I opened my macbook. Then I go to the internet-> disk utility boot and see this ssd is completely erased, no partition! I don't really know what to do.

    It seems that he connects with optibay because it uses cd, mode standby/hibernation and sessions.

    Please help me! =)

    I forgot to add, all the time, I used trimforce enabled, unless it's necessary information. Hope someone could help me.

  • Mode from standby/hibernation missing on my laptop Satellite L750-16Z

    I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite L750-16Z. So I had a lot of material on an old hard drive, I had need so I put my old Hard drive in my new Toshiba & installed all the drivers I could find for the model L750 /.

    The only problem now is I n ' have no sleep / hibernate options. They are grayed out.

    Can anyone suggest how to get this working? Or maybe there's an ACPI option that must be changed in the BIOS? Would be appreciated if anyone has the suggestion

    To be honest I didn t understand what have you done with HARD drive but the fact is that you are missing some basic as display driver drivers.
    I'm afraid that you must clean OS install so I highly recommend you to install original recovery image (original version of OS) m that you got with your laptop.
    You have recovery media?

  • Satellite Pro A200GE-1F9 may not resume from standby or hibernation with SP1


    Details of the laptop: [my laptop: ie = Yes & PRODUCT_ID = 131911]

    I recently used Windows Update to install SP1 vista on my laptop, but since this installation I can't resume from standby or hibernation. (Service pack has successfully installed - according to Windows anyway).

    At the resumption of his sleep, I get a blank screen.

    During the recovery from Hibernation, I receive a STOP error message: + Stop 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x82F11020, 0x9A9D9714, 0x00000000) + caused by * Classpnp.sys*.

    After checking these forums, I have seen that Toshiba does not support SP1 + what is accurate? +

    + * If so when/how we will notify when Toshiba released a "patch" for compatibility Vista SP1? I'm guessing that via personnel TEMPO? *. +

    Before installing SP1, I installed all the updates (from Microsoft and Toshiba) and had no problems; all the drivers are up to date.

    Thanks for any answers in advance.

    I guess that this happens because of a problem of compatibility between some pilots and SP1

    > After checking these forums, I saw that Toshiba does not support SP1 is that correct?
    Yes it's true.

    > If Yes, when and how will notify us when Toshiba released a "patch" for compatibility Vista SP1? I'm guessing that via personnel TEMPO?
    I think that there should be information on the Toshiba driver page, support page or we will receive some information of Toshiba through applications of Tempo.

    We'll see

  • Cursor starts moving across the screen from left to right after the wake up the computer from standby or hibernation

    Original title: cursor goes wild

    My PC to 'wake up' sleep/hibernate, the cursor initially moving across the screen from left to right, in which window is open, destroy all the document is on the screen. I force Windows to close. How to solve this other than turning off standby/hibernation?

    Looks like the cursor of the mouse is very sensitive when the computer comes out of standby or hibernation.
    I suggest that you go in the mouse properties and lower the sensitivity and see if that helps.
    You also need to update any driver mouse if possible.

    Let us know if that helps.

  • Satellite U300-144 does not come from the standby/hibernation mode

    Hi, can anyone help?

    I have a new Satellite U300-144 accompanying the Vista home 32-bit preinstallation. I have a problem, he wants to come to the sleep/hibernation mode, and my clear blue power is always on standby/hibernation mode. I hold the power button to restart the computer and then I get a message of illegal closure because I don t shutdown right.

    I tried to upgrade the BIOS later for my model and the n t the problem, then I tried to upgrade to Vista Ultimate t doesn't help either. I installed all the drivers and everything works real well.

    A colleague using me U300 Office. I asked him to check the extended sleep/standby option and he reported that everything works correctly. He always uses the factory settings and only one update is added value package. He kidnapped the former and installed latest version of the Toshiba download page.

    Have you installed latest PPVS too?

  • Lose Internet connection after sleep/standby/hibernation Mode

    I recently bought a new HP Pavilion Elite e9105z CTO Office and migrated from Win XP to Vista Home Premium x 64, with a NVIDIA nForce 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Controller.  Whenever I come off standby or standby mode, I lose my Internet connection and have to restart my system or run Windows Network Diagnostics to repair the network adapter settings.

    I tried several remedies available on Internet; but unfortunately, nothing has resulted in a permanent solution.  I contacted my service provider ISP (Mediacom) wonder if it was / is a problem with the firmware used to my cable modem SBV5220 support (for example, incompatibility with Vista) and they said there is no.  So far, I have:

    1. Reinstalled NIC driver.
    2. Power options controlled and reset with USB CDC.
    3. Apply the update for Windows Vista (default gateway setting is lost) for x 64 systems (KB933872) - response that update does not apply to the system.
    4. Reset the IP configuration via the Cmd line.
    5. Tab power, unchecked the box that shuts down the adapter then power save comes into play.

    Access the computer several times a day and having to reset Internet connections became extremely aggravating.  I hope there is a solution.  Thanks in advance for your help.

    Back from a 3 week stay, during which my office has been extinguished, my local internet connection would come is no longer active when he came out of hibernation.  The without line worked, but the local connection would not work unless physically, I unplugged the cable from the router (Netgear) and reinserted it.

    After several days of frustration, I went into the Manager of devices, unchecked ethernet optional adapter "allow the computer to turn off this device."
    This seems to have cleared up the problem, at least until now...
  • Keyboard gives erroneous characters of standby / hibernation

    Dear all,

    I have an Acer Aspire V5-471. It is fully updated with Windows8.1 and all the MS later updates.

    The problem is that sometimes when the computer from sleep / hibernate mode, the keys to generate incorrect characters. It is a major problem when trying to enter my password to logon.

    I thought it might be a hardware or driver problem and checked the keys and uninstalled/reinstalled drivers, all to nothing does not.

    I then connected with another account and worked well, I created for the first account and who then worked fine until I put the computer to sleep (lid closed). When it happened again, I just changed my user, switched back and it's OK even once in the first count.

    So it seems to enter the mode standby/hibernation somehow corrupts a keyboard user account assignment.

    Has anyone else had this problem? I searched the site and cannot find all similar occurrences.

    Thank you
