Anyone has any idea if I can use command line to force XP pro into Hibernate
mode?

I went through the Command Line documentation but was unable to fine it.
Perhaps I have been looking in the wrong place.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Haven't tried it myself but it's amazing what you can find on google.

Hi Ed,

You may try this shutdown.exe utility
http://www.budja.com/shutdown/

From that page:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Shutdown.exe is a simple command line utility that can:
Log Off the current user
Shutdown (Turn Off) the computer
Restart the computer
Hibernate the computer (note that hibernation has to be enabled!)
Put the computer into Stand By (Sleep)
--------------------------------------------------------------------

-or-

See if this information helps, from David Candy:

From Torgeir Bakken:

The following command line tools supports suspend (sleep) as
well as hibernate:

rundll32 Powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState

Note I can't guarantee it will always work. As we're passing Null, Null, Null. to a function that expects values.


Platform SDK: Hardware

SetSuspendState
The SetSuspendState function suspends the system by shutting power down. Depending on the Hibernate parameter, the system either enters a suspend (sleep) state or hibernation (S4). If the ForceFlag parameter is TRUE, the system suspends operation immediately; if it is FALSE, the system requests permission from all applications and device drivers before doing so.

BOOL SetSuspendState (
BOOL Hibernate,
BOOL ForceCritical,
BOOL DisableWakeEvent
);
Parameters
Hibernate
[in] Specifies the state of the system. If TRUE, the system hibernates. If FALSE, the system is suspended.
ForceCritical
[in] Forced suspension. If TRUE, the function broadcasts a PBT_APMSUSPEND event to each application and driver, then immediately suspends operation. If FALSE, the function broadcasts a PBT_APMQUERYSUSPEND event to each application to request permission to suspend operation.
DisableWakeEvent
[in] If TRUE, the system disables all wake events. If FALSE, any system wake events remain enabled.
Return Values
If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

Remarks
An application may use SetSuspendState to transition the system from the working state to the standby (sleep), or optionally, hibernate (S4) state. This function is similar to the SetSystemPowerState function.

Requirements
Windows NT/2000/XP: Included in Windows 2000 and later.
Windows 95/98/Me: Included in Windows 98 and later.
Header: Declared in Powrprof.h.
Library: Use Powrprof.lib.

Thanks Ramesh, your links are most helpful and they certainly work on all
the machines that I tested.

Thanks to everyone's contribution.
