I am using very poor lines for these scripts. Do you have any better ones?

For sleep, i use this script;

For hibernate:

acSendKeys("{DELAY=100}@r shutdown -h{ENTER}")

NOTE: I'm using Windows8.1 with Modern UI.

Really, the only thing I can think of off the top of my head to use acRunProgram and leverage the command line options Windows has, as shown here:

Here's what I've come up with based on the link provided by Rob. Note that the first line of code changes the hibernation setting. In other words, if you want to do a manual hibernation after running the sleep script, you need to run the first line of other script, and vice versa, or go to control panel's power options.

To sleep:

acShellExecute('', 'powercfg', '-h off')
acShellExecute('', 'rundll32', 'Powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Sleep')

To hibernate:

acShellExecute('', 'powercfg', '-h on')
acShellExecute('', 'rundll32', 'Powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Sleep')
