WinSleep is a Windows utility that keeps your computer asleep when they are not busy.

  • Keeps your computer asleep (while not too busy) as much as possible during periods you specify.
  • Provides a detailed time-line graph showing when your computer was awake, asleep, or hibernating. WinSleep is the only Windows sleep program with this feature!
  • Sleep Journal shows when/why your computer woke up or went to sleep.
  • Provides convenient Sleep and Hibernate buttons for manual use when desired.
  • Shows the current CPU/Disk/Network usage percentages for your computer.
  • Define multiple sleep schedules (daily, weekly, or monthly timeslot), each with a designated sleep policy with its own cpu/disk/network usage limits.
  • Set wake schedules and an optional task to be run at each wake.
  • Saves money! A typical desktop uses 250 watts of electricity when awake, but only a few watts while asleep. Power companies (in the US) may bill at say 10 cents per kWH. This is .25 kWH @ 10 cents = 2.5 cents/hr you are saving while asleep. Say WinSleep sleeps your computer for half the day; this is $.30/day = $109.50 per year. The more you sleep, the more you save. (We didn’t even count the power consumption of the computer monitor here.)
  • Helps prolong the life of your desktop computer. Your disk drive is not spinning, motherboard is not powered, fan is not running (and accumulating dust inside the computer casing), and your monitors are in standby mode.
  • A typical scenario – Windows Update may wake your computer at e.g. 2 a.m. – but WinSleep can put it back to sleep once the update processing is over!
  • Stay in touch with your WinSleep when you are away from home! The free program WinSleep Monitor can be installed on a remote computer to see when your home computer was awake or asleep.
