Sleep Mode, which is also known ans stand-by, deep sleep and suspend, is a low power mode for electronic devices that saves electronic consumption during that time. Wake Up On Standby is a software program for Microsoft Windows that can return the computer from sleep mode into normal mode, perform tasks and make it go back into sleep mode or perform another shutdown operation afterwards.
This tool can be interesting for users who regularly use sleep mode or hibernation instead of turning off their computer completely after work. That's only one possibility though. The software program can also be used to run system updates, system optimization or other tasks that are best executed when no one is accessing the computer.
Wake Up On Standby is a portable utility compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista and additional former Microsoft operating systems. It uses a five step configuration procedure to exactly time and configure the automatic sleep mode wake up procedure:
The configuration can be saved as a bat file which is useful if Wake Up On Standby should be run with the same settings again or if the settings should be copied to another computer with a similar setup.
