Experts, i am working on an application where i will be using the setSuspendState api function to put the pc into sleep mode is certain cases. I am trying to use the sysInfo.ocx control to get the events when the pc actually goes into sleep mode and when it wakes up. If i put the computer to sleep through the start menu i get the events. But when i do it programatically i do not get the events. Does anyone know a way around this? I have also tried subclassing to get the WMPower stuff and then i only get the awake message but still never get the sleep message.
