Put Laptop/workstation into Sleep mode

I think I remember someone talking about using HA to put their computer into sleep mode using an existing component. I just can’t remember the details. :slight_smile: So If you are using HA to put your PC/Laptop to sleep in your automations, I’d love to hear how. I have a Windows 8 laptop with 3 monitors that just sucks energy so I’d like to use presence detection to put it to sleep ahead of the normal power plan built into the windows.


I have Windows 8 using Acer Laptop. Great information You shared , but i failed to use this, Can You ellaborate more on how using HA to put our laptop on sleeping mode.What details we need for that? I also tried Acer Technical Support for the same.
