Hi Experts,

I have a customer that we have created a script to automatically run a dialup network connection / vpn connection / rdp connection on computer startup. The scripts work well. I would like to however have these scripts automatically run when the computer comes out of standby.

Is there a way to automatically run batch scripts out of standby?

Thanks

Example Script...

'Script type VBS starts'

Set oShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set colMonitoredEvents = GetObject("winmgmts:").ExecNotificationQuery("Select * from Win32_PowerManagementEvent")
Do
  Set oSuspend = colMonitoredEvents.NextEvent
  If oSuspend.EventType = 7 Then
    'Here you insert the code to lauch whatever you need'
    MsgBox "Waking up !"
  End If
Loop

'Script Ends
