I know how to shutdown from command prompt/shortcut. This is what I have as a desktop shutdown shortcut

%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00


Is there a way to hibernate in the same way? Or from command prompt, I don't mind.

Thanks :pray::wave:

There are 3rd party apps and ways to do it from the Command Prompt, but with 20 minutes being the shortest automatic method from the Power Options you're pretty well covered unless there's a special need to do it quicker.

Re: Is there a way to hibernate via shortcut/command prompt?

The computer in question is most often access via RDC from school, so I turn it on before I leave and start a 2 hour shutdown timer. It just takes a fairly long time to boot into windows and load my things, so I'd rather have it hibernating on the weekdays.

How would I do it via command prompt?

Try this or mess around with it a little bit.
%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState
