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 to be no normal way to put my computer to sleep. The closest I found was:
- Ctrl + Del + Del
- 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?
