Hi experts,

I wish to log my hours worked on my PC at work.
Ive attached an uptime script i want to run at shutdown to write session uptime to a file. Is it possible to modify this script so it updates the outputed text file by adding the previous uptime to it giving me my full uptime by the end of the week?

best rgds,
Grace



Dim filesys, logtimes 

Set filesys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 

Set  logtimes= filesys.CreateTextFile("c:\Documents and Settings\grace\Desktop\uptime.txt") 
 
 

strComputer = "."
 

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colOperatingSystems = objWMIService.ExecQuery _

("Select * From Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfOS_System")
 

For Each objOS in colOperatingSystems

intSystemUptime = Int(objOS.SystemUpTime)

logtimes.Write intSystemUptime & " seconds"

Next

Open in new window

Shows how to append instead of overwrite, and also add a date/time stamp for each line.
Dim filesys, logtimes 

Set filesys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 

Const fsoForAppend = 8

Set  logtimes= filesys.OpenTextFile("c:\Documents and Settings\grace\Desktop\uptime.txt", fsoForAppend, True) 
 
 

Dim strComputer

strComputer = "."

 

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colOperatingSystems = objWMIService.ExecQuery _

("Select * From Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfOS_System")

 

For Each objOS in colOperatingSystems

    intSystemUptime = Int(objOS.SystemUpTime)

    logtimes.WriteLine intSystemUptime & " seconds at " & Now()

Next

logtimes.close

Set logtimes = Nothing

Set filesys = Nothing

Thanks for your response.
It keeps logging uptime even when my laptop goes into sleep mode. Is there a way around this?

Yeah, I could see that would be a problem.

I can think of a way to do this in .NET but I can't think of a robust way to handle it with VBScript.  In .NET it's possible to capture the events for sleep mode.

About the best I could think of is to have two scripts.  One that you run when you startup and one that you run when you shut down.

'Startup.vbs

Dim filesys, logtimes 

Set filesys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 

Const fsoForAppend = 8

Set  logtimes= filesys.OpenTextFile("c:\Documents and Settings\grace\Desktop\uptime.txt", fsoForAppend, True) 

 

 

 

logtimes.WriteLine "Startup " & Now()
 

logtimes.close

Set logtimes = Nothing

Set filesys = Nothing
 

'Shutdown.vbs

Dim filesys, readtime, logtime

Set filesys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 

Const fsoForAppend = 8

Const fsoForReading = 1 
 

Set  readtime= filesys.OpenTextFile("c:\Documents and Settings\grace\Desktop\uptime.txt", fsoForReading, True) 
 

 

 

Dim strLine

Dim dtStartup 
 

Do While readtime.AtEndOfStream = False

    'Find last line in file

    strLine = readtime.ReadLine

Loop

readtime.Close

Set readtime = Nothing
 

If Not strLine = "" Then

    If Instr(strLine, "Startup ") Then

        dtStartup = CDate(Mid(strLine, 9))

    End If

End If
 

If IsEmpty(dtStartup) Then  'Check if last line contained a startup time

    Msgbox("Startup Time not found in file.  Check if the last line in the file is a start up time")

Else

    Set logtime = filesys.OpenTextFile("c:\Documents and Settings\grace\Desktop\uptime.txt", fsoForAppend, True) 

    logtime.WriteLine DateDiff("s", dtStartup, Now()) & " at " & now

    logtime.Close

    Set logtime = Nothing

    

End If
 

Set filesys = Nothing

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I found 2 programs that might be able to help me. One of them is copied in a snippet below. AwakeScript.vbs just appends "Out of standby" with a timestamp  to uptime.txt. (It doesnt actually do it yet.. im getting an error(but ive posted it on another post so should have it right soon).




The other one for going into standby is as follows (unmodified from the way i found it)


Option Explicit

Dim wmiPowerManagementEvent, objProcess
Const cntEventEnteringSuspend = 4

Set wmiPowerManagementEvent = GetObject("winmgmts:").ExecNotificationQuery("Select * from Win32_PowerManagementEvent")
Do
   If wmiPowerManagementEvent.NextEvent.EventType = cntEventEnteringSuspend Then
      For Each objProcess in GetObject("winmgmts:").ExecQuery("select * from Win32_Process where name='ehshell.exe'")
        objProcess.Terminate(0)
        Next
   End If
Loop


Is it possible to make this second script run "Sleepnow.vbs" ( which appends "Into Standby" plus a timestamp to uptime.vbs instead of terminating whatever its doing?

PS Im able to manage Sleepnow.vbs:-)




Option Explicit

 

Dim wmiPowerManagementEvent, oShell

Const cntEventEnteringWakeup = 7

 

Set wmiPowerManagementEvent = GetObject("winmgmts:").ExecNotificationQuery("Select * from Win32_PowerManagementEvent")

Do

   If wmiPowerManagementEvent.NextEvent.EventType = cntEventEnteringWakeup Then

 set oShell=createobject("WScript.Shell")

 oShell.Run "C:\Documents and Settings\Grace\Desktop\AwakeScript.vbs"

   End If

Loop

You can run one script from another like this:

Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objShell.Run "C:\Sleepnow.vbs", 1, True  '1 shows the window, and true waits until it's fiinished to return
