How do I put the WINDOWS computer to sleep from the CTRL/ALT/DEL command log-in screen without having to enter my password and log-in? All the computers in our network must be password protected, and sometimes I'm ready to leave, am required to leave my computer asleep if I want remote access from home (and I do) and I can't find anywhere to put it back to sleep without logging in first.

Are the power options set to have the computer go to sleep after a given time? If so, there would be no reason to log back in. It will go to sleep after the given time has elapsed. – CharlieRB Apr 25 '13 at 19:18

After doing a Ctrl + Alt + Del - you will find the Power Options in the
bottom right corner (under Windows 7).

From there you can hybernate
