    On Windows – sleep missing when CsEnabled is turn off (registry tweak).

    It’s a re-post of general knowledge, but just in case somebody looking..

    If you disabled Connected Standby (it’s a tweak for Win 8.1 machines but still available on Win 10) it will disable Sleep mode (so you lose Sleep button and tablet won’t be able to go to sleep). Connected Standby option is now what appears to be in Windows 10 under Power Configuration (new settings).

    So leave the CsEnabled enabled “1” because otherwise Sleep option becomes disabled.

    I haven’t tested the difference between Connected Standby enabled or disabled or whether the new option in new settings “On battery power, stay connected to network while asleep” is same or not.. but it appears to be same purpose.

    BTW – Stand-by mode on Tablets in Windows 10 is apparently just a “low-powered statate” and not a traditional stand-by more, which explains why Windows tablets eat more battery than some laptops when in standby, regardless of battery size.

    EDIT: powercfg -a shows “S0 Low Power Idle (S0)” Network Disconnected mode as available, but “Standby S1” is not available. So yes, the connected standy is the new “network disconnected” option in Windows 10.

    Another tip – adding sleep button:

    I find the power button on the tablet a bit flimsy. Tried to do software shortcut, but SetSuspendState Sleep or the PsShutdown don’t work, instead it hibernates. So the only option I found is to emulate keypress Alt+F4.

    Here is a simple way to make a shortcut for Sleep and add to Start menu in Windows:

    You need automation tools such as AutoHotkey or Robotask. Create new task. You need to press the Alt+F4 keys on desktop, otherwise it just closes the topmost window. To do that, add task to open shortcut %windir%\explorer.exe shell:::{3080F90D-D7AD-11D9-BD98-0000947B0257}. After that just add stops .. press ALT+F4, up and up and Enter.

    Make a shortcut and Startup button.

    Voila.

    (The Hibernation still works via SetSuspendState. )
