Below are a collection of utilities and programs which i have written. They are/will be for various operating systems, and will be labelled as such.
Hibertimer for windows is a compiled python exe which was written for a friend to make hibernating a windows pc after a delay quicker and simpler all versions of windows. On the windows XP machine used to test this, the "shutdown /h" command was not available to hibernate the pc, so this script uses another method of hibernating by directly referencing rundll32.exe. Please note that i have not had chance to test this personally in any other version of windows than XP SP3. Thanks to Adam James McKissock for suggesting python for this version and for helping to get me going with python.
USAGE: Either double-click "hibertimer.exe", or run it directly at the command prompt. Then follow the instructions on screen.
