    Some of you have surely read commands commands

    As Acronis wasn't able or didn't want to create the possibility for rebooting automatically the computer after a successful backup, or for a computer shutdown after a time-set backup until version True Image 11.0.8010 and neither in version True Image 2009, i searched in the internet and i found a program which makes it.

    There is PowerOff in english and german version.

    Poweroff is a small program for Win95/98/NT/W2K/XP to schedule a shutdown/reboot/logoff/poweroff/Standby/Hibernate/Lock/Wake-On-LAN at a certain time. It also supports command line options that allows poweroff to be used in batch scripts. It has a built-in scheduler, it allows you to run a program before doing the action, you can give a warning message to the user, wait for a process to finish before doing the action and full remote control is supported.

    Only 168 kb.

    For Hibernate, put the checkmarks like in this screenshot, then click "Process...", it shows you

    For "Process" choose TrueImageHomeService.exe in C:\Program Files\Common files\Acronis\TrueImageHome, then click "OK".

    Now click "Do it".

    This works for every Action to the left side of the PowerOff-program.

    Action Hibernate:
    If you get the Windows-error-message "Not enough system-ressources to close the API" you do not have already installed the ServicePack3 for XP. Then you need a Bugfix (2.4 MByte) from , please download there the Optional Update KB909095 which is fixing the problem successfully.
