Last time, I wrote several articles and documentation's regarding the Middle Mouse button Customizations in Windows Vista.

Here's another tip: Shutdown, Restart, Lock your Computer / Workstation, Sleep or Hibernate using the scroll wheel button easily.

 

How?

1. Read the previous article:

2. At number 8, Choose which option you want to set and enter the command colored in blue:

 

Shutdown your Computer

Shutdown.exe -s -t 00

- Force all applications to close and shutdown immediately

or

Shutdown.exe -s      (After 30s...)

---------------------------------------------------------------

Restart Computer

Shutdown.exe -r -t 00

---------------------------------------------------------------

Sleep Computer

Hibernate Computer

How to turn off / On the Hibernate feature: powercfg

powercfg -hibernate off

powercfg -hibernate on

That's it!

If the Sleep or Hibernate command is not working. Check first, if your computer supports these sleep states: Open the command prompt (cmd.exe) and type, powercfg -a
