    I have created command prompt shortcuts for Shutdown, Restart, Hibernate and Sleep in Windows 8. Shutdown and Restart work fine. I created two icons:
    Sleep: (,,,SetSuspendState 0,1,0) and Hibernate: (,,,SetSuspendState hibernate)
    If I enable hibernate (powercfg -h on) then hibernate works but sleep also hibernates.
    If I disable hibernate, the sleep works and hibernate does nothing.
    The strange part is with hibernate ON, the command line for hibernate works and the sleep button in the Charms DOES put it to sleep and the hibernate command line works.
    So, my question is: what is different about the Charms Sleep button than the command line and how can I get a command line for both?
    Also, in Advanced Power Options under Sleep there are "Sleep After", "Hibernate After" but no "Allow Hybrid Sleep". If the motherboard doesn't allow it, why does it work using the Charms?
    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
