Disable Sleep and Hibernation on Machines

Zach Echlin 4 years ago updated by anonymous 4 years ago 2

LogMeIn has long had the ability to disable sleep and hibernation on client machines.


Currently, I am having to issue the following commands to machines to disable sleep and hibernation:


c:\windows\system32\powercfg.exe -change -disk-timeout-ac 0
c:\windows\system32\powercfg.exe -change -standby-timeout-ac 0
c:\windows\system32\powercfg.exe -change -hibernate-timeout-ac 0

It would be nice if ScreenConnect had the option to disable sleep and hibernation automatically or in an automated way for a selection of machines.

Answer

Acquire Wake Lock – New for ScreenConnect 5.5. Prevent a remote machine from auto-locking, going to sleep, playing a screensaver, or hibernating. If you forget to select the “Release” button, the wake lock will automatically release when you close the host client window.

If you're looking for a more permanently change the status, I would load your cmds into the commands toolbox for distribution: http://forum.screenconnect.com/yaf_postst8007_Extension--Command-Toolbox.aspx#post28828
