I don't believe there is a sleep command in VBScript, but I could be mistaken...

ok...Would the best be to use a batch command? If so, do you have one?

Hi, you can use this:

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objShell.Run "net stop d3vme"
WScript.Sleep 300000 ' wait five minutes
objShell.Run "shutdown -r -t 0"

Or this to just have the Shutdown timeout to five minutes
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objShell.Run "net stop d3vme"
objShell.Run "shutdown -r -t 300"


Regards,

Rob.

Oh, and you can hide those command prompts:

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objShell.Run "net stop d3vme", 0, True
objShell.Run "shutdown -r -t 300", 0, False

The second parameter of zero means run it hidden, the third parameter waits for the comand to finish before processing the next one.

Regards,

Rob.
