Be sure to use the latest version of psshutdown.exe you should add „/AcceptEula“ to the command line of these programs that require it. It`s best to try, and if you don`t get a syntax defect, use it. The agreement is registered under „HKCU Software-Sysinternals-PsExec-EulaAccepted“ (1-accepted, 0-rejected). Apparently, if it has been rejected before, the command line switch will not work. As mentioned in the introduction, there are a variety of parameters that can vary from computer to computer and that can disrupt the correct behavior of the sleep link. I once had the privilege of dealing with a stubborn windows 10 sleep link that refused to work because of a faulty system device. I then opened an order prompt, navigated to the folder in which the psshutdown utility was located, and ran the utility via the command prompt to see if any error messages occurred. To do this, you need to enter psshutdown -d for a Sleep command instead of a shutdown (you can get an overview of all psshutdown options by typing psshutdown/?). United States.
If you purchased the software in the United States, Washington State law regulates the interpretation of this agreement and applies to claims for violation of this Agreement, regardless of the conflict of laws rules. The laws of the state in which you live regulate all other claims, including rights under national consumer protection legislation, unfair competition laws and misdemeanours. It turns out that it`s not so easy to describe a „One Size fits all“ guide step by step to create a Windows 10 sleep link, because there are so many settings. You can run the same Windows 10 version as the guy next door and still get different results with your sleep shortcut, because your computer hardware is a little different. Putting Windows 10 on standby depends heavily on a number of system devices and even the type of BIOS can make a difference. So if you`ve tried the steps of my other article of windows 10 shortcuts and it didn`t work, feel free to follow this alternative approach described below. This method uses one of Microsoft`s Sysinternals utilities called psshutdown, a command line utility that was originally created to shut down the computer, but with the flexibility to do much more (including shutting down remote computers, imminently shutting down and in fact: putting a Windows 10 rest link on the desktop).
