Windows: Use Powercfg API for Requests

Post by GLomax »

Using the Powercfg API requests to keep a Windows system in Wake mode (no sleep while SABnzbd is loaded) would allow a user to Override the request and allow the system to go to sleep.

A command such as:

powercfg /requestsoverride process sabnzbd.exe system awaymode

in a script could be scheduled to allow a Windows system to go to sleep while sabnzbd.exe is active. The alternative is to kill the process with a command: taskkill /f /im sabnzbd.exe

You can also just disable sabnzbd keeping your system awake, it's in Config Specials :)
