A few days ago I installed Windows 8. I first found the lack of the "shutdown" menu comical, but now it's starting to annoy me. There seems no normal way to put my computer to sleep. The closest I found was:
- 2x shift-tab
- arrow down
As an alternative, I'm now looking for a command line tool to put Windows 8 to sleep.
The closest I could find was:
Which causes Windows to hibernate. Unfortunately, hibernate isn't sleep. You can't wake a computer from hibernation with a key: you have to press the power button. And the computer will go through the BIOS startup before waking from hibernation.
Has anyone found a convenient way to put Windows 8 to sleep?
