Hy, Is this for Mr Data power saving?  Why not rig Mr Data to close down if there is no input to it after a period.  Most laptops do this anyway, to save on battery useage.  Rig your Mr Data to be shutdown by the laptop shutting down. (Maybe a photo-cell at a portion of the laptop screen that darkens when the laptop shuts down to shut down Mr Data.)

Hi Will,

For wake from sleep, how about:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>SCHTASKS.exe /create /tn "HalWake" /ru "SYSTEM" /XML "C:\Program Files (x86)\Zabaware\Ultra Hal 7\Wakeup Hal.xml" /f
SUCCESS: The scheduled task "HalWake" has successfully been created.


But first, you need an .XML file... To do this
  • Via the Task Scheduler, create a task manually on the computer... Ensure "wake the computer to run this task" under the Conditions tab is checked ...
  • Right click task and export to an xml file...
  • You may delete the task from the Task Scheduler now (to watch it reappear later) because a fresh one will be recreated running schtasks.exe with that /XML switch from CMD prompt with Administrator privileges. :)
The /f switch Forcefully creates the task and suppresses warnings if the specified task already exists.

In my Wakeup Hal.xml schedule. lines 8 - 16 look like this:
  <Triggers>
    <CalendarTrigger>
      <StartBoundary>2021-03-13T10:00:00</StartBoundary>
      <Enabled>true</Enabled>
      <ScheduleByDay>
        <DaysInterval>1</DaysInterval>
      </ScheduleByDay>
    </CalendarTrigger>
  </Triggers>


 8)

Kryton: lol


buddy im with you, 
Why not just turn on the powersaver mode. In windows as long as i remember.Lots of costume features for just that.
Why re invent the wheel...... lift the lid on the lappy and everything jumps back to life. CHARGED
