Sleep function in PC allows a computer to save its state and go in less power consumption mode. On returning from sleep, the opened files and folders continue to execute in the same manner.

Normally, we have to press power button to return back a computer from sleep mode. But this can be done automatically.

Lets see how,

1. Open ‘Task Scheduler’ in your Windows. This program allows users to run a specific program at a particular point of time.

2. Click on ‘Create Task’.

3. Provide a name to task. Lets we call it as ‘Wake PC automatically from sleep mode’. Enable ‘Run with highest privileges’ to make sure the task runs with the highest priority.

5. In conditions tab, check ‘Wake the computer to run this task’ option. This ensures our task is performed in every situation, whether its running normally or is in sleep mode. If its in sleep mode, the computer is first waken and then the task is executed.

6. We cannot just wake PC from sleep. We need to execute some task for which the PC would return to normal mode from sleep (which we want). As we’ve already defined the time, next step is to add an action.

In Actions tab, provide the command cmd.exe with /c “exit” argument – a null action, eventually doing nothing.
