How to make computer sleep remotely?
I remote into a Vista box via Remote Desktop. I don't see an option to put
this machine to sleep. I can shutdown (shutdown /s) or shutdown/restart
(shutdown /r) but no sleep. Is there a way to enable this?

Thanks,
Brett

There are probably many ways, but what I do is create a RemoteShutdown.js
file with the (text) content "(new
ActiveXObject("Shell.Application")).ShutdownWindow s();" removing the outer
quote marks of course. Then create a shortcut (drag MB2) and rename the
shortcut to RemoteShutdown. Clicking on that gives me all the shutdown
options.
