    Creating desktop shortcut for sleep command on Windows Vista

    I canít find the exact location for sleep button in my laptop running on Windows Vista. Therefore, I am planning to make a shortcut for executing the sleep command. How can I accomplish this?

    Re: Creating desktop shortcut for sleep command on Windows Vista

    Right click anywhere inside desktop or folder and choose New->Shortcut from the pop-up menu. Type Rundll32.exe Powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Sleep into the field under ‘Type the location of the item’ label. Press the ‘Next’ button afterwards so that a shortcut named ‘rundll32’ will be created on the desktop. Select ‘Rename’ option after right clicking on that shortcut and type Sleep in the place of rundll32. If you want to set up an icon for this shortcut, then right click on it and go to Properties -> Change Icon. Enter %SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll icons into ‘Look for icons in this file’ field. Highlight the icon you like from the group of icons displayed on the window and click the ‘OK’ button.
