It defaults to SHUTDOWN. How do I change this to SLEEP?
(I am referring to the button on the Start Menu, not the hardware button on the PC.)
Open the settings, go to the Customize Start Menu tab, double-click the ShutdownBoxItem in the left column.
Then pick a different command from the dropdown - sleep, hibernate, whatever.
Change the label and the icon if you wish.
Slick. That saved me a lot of time. Thanks!
Hi. Just installed the program and am liking it. But the solution above is not working for me. When I try that (choosing "Sleep" from the dropdown), the entire Shut Down menu disappears. I have Windows 8 Pro on a Latitude 10 tablet. Actually, the "sleep" option does not show up in the start menu at all--when I view the submenu for Shut Down, all of the options in the ShutdownBoxItem list are there except Sleep. I tried putting Sleep in other parts of the start menu, but it doesn't show up anywhere. Any help would be appreciated.
It is possible the system reports that "sleep" is not supported. If you press Alt+F4 on the desktop, do you see Sleep as one of the options?
Also, which version of Classic Shell are you using?
I am using 3.6.5.
I don't have an Alt key or a F4 key on the keypad on this tablet.
OK, then reset the menu and click on the original Shutdown item. It will open a dialog box with a dropdown.
Thanks for your quick replies. Doing that gives me the Windows 8 "Shut Down Windows" box, with Shut down as the default and Sleep as an option in the dropdown menu. What I would like is to have a Sleep command available in the Start menu without having to go through all those submenus.
BTW, I also put this on my desktop machine (also Win 8 Pro), and the "Sleep' command does show up on the Start menu.
You can try using a command line as described here:
Windows cannot find "rundll32.exe".
It is in C:\Windows\System32
oops--mixup of "l" and "1". :$
This caused the tablet to shut down. Tried the powercfg -hibernate off as well--still got the same result.
I don't know then. You need to find a command that works with your tablet. I do not own such device and can't tell you the solution.
Oh well, thanks a lot for trying.
