Method using a VBS background script that starts a batch script (made in windows 10). Turn on hibernation option when using this (explained below). Note that this isn't a super solid solution to your problem. The batch script will put your computer into a hybrid-sleep-hibernate mode if you have the hibernation option turned on (I do). I recommend turning on the hibernation option because, although turning it off will likely sleep the computer instead, there is a small possibility that it will power your computer down. In general, the batch method isn't very solid.
Set Shell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
set cmd=WMIC /NameSpace:\\root\WMI Path BatteryStatus Get PowerOnline
%cmd% | find /i "true" > nul && set OnAC=true
if %OnAC% == false %windir%\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Standby
- So first, you need to paste the VBS code into a .vbs file.
- Then, paste the BAT code into a .bat file in the same file location as the VBS file.
- After that, you will need to make a shortcut of your VBS file, copy it, and paste it into the startup folder (to make it run automatically on startup): C:\Users\[YOU USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
Basically, this code runs a VBS file in the background which opens a batch script every minute. This batch script will do the sleep action if your computer is not on A.C. power. To kill the process, type "taskkill /f /im wscript.exe" into the search, but note that this will kill all WScript processes. Again, please note that this is not a completely reliable solution.
