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

Posting the script again due to line break...

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
