What are people saying about BackToSleep

David Vaughan I use LogMeIn for remote access to my computer but LMI is usually unable to wakeup a sleeping computer. It would be nice if BackToSleep could somehow allow the computer to wakeup via remote access but this may not be possible? What do you think?
Feb 29 2012 at 5:40am Copy Link
Vyacheslav Koldovskyy Dear David, there are multiple options how to prevent BackToSleep from returning a PC to sleep when you waking it using LMI. The best one is to keep that PC connected to power adapter and sure to keep checked option "Detect unwanted awakenings on battery power only".

I you like just to remotely wake your PC, BackToSleep has nothing to do with it. But I may tell you how to do it in other way.
I see two ways to do it:
1. Wake PC using "Magic Packet". Every modern PC can wake from a network card command, you just have to enable this feature in BIOS settings, in network adapter settings and in Power Management tab of Device manager. To enable Magic Packet go through your internet connection, you have to configure your modem or WiFi router to forward ingoing UDP packets on port 7 and 9 to your local network. Then use this free service to run wake command:
2. Or there is much simpler solution for most non-techy people : just allow mouse to wake a PC and place it near or above mobile phone (everyone has spare old phone this time) with enabled vibration mode (you can faster it to mouse with a rubber band). Call the phone number when you need your PC to wake up. Just simple lifehack which came to my head first :)

I hope it will become useful to you

Joel Koltner I'd like to see a documented case of a laptop actually "frying" (being permanently damaged) due to waking up in its carrying bag or something similar -- to my knowledge, all laptops have various temperature sensors in them that will shut down the system if it gets too hot.
Feb 29 2012 at 9:00am Copy Link
Vyacheslav Koldovskyy Dear Joel, Google shows 6.7M results for "my laptop has been fried" phrase. And I think that most of that cases happened while laptop has been working in normal conditions, not in congested space. Why sensors did not help even in normal conditions? Do you really believe that it will help in laptop bag when temperature is rising very quickly and some components (like HDD) are extremely vulnerable to high temperatures? Even if temperature sensors shutdown system, it may be just too late to save HDD or other components.

BackToSleep has been created in result of my personal experience - I almost never shutdown system and always try to keep it in sleeping state while transporting or during brakes. It saved many days and even weeks of my life because I do not wait for system to boot and do not have to start programs, open documents, etc. again. For more than 10 years of being laptop user I had multiple cases when different laptops awakened from sleep while in carrying case. In none of cases system shutdown automatically because of temperature sensors. One time I saw my old Dell Studio 1735 strangely blinking LED's (maybe some kind of overheating indication) but it still continued to work in carrying case despite been very hot. After that case I had to replace HDD because it started to show S.M.A.R.T errors just at the next boot and something has happened to battery - it's lifetime from one charge has significantly reduced. My new Dell XPS 17 wakened in carrying case too and continued to work till Windows returned it to sleep mode after some period of inactivity but I got discharged battery when I didn't take power adapter with me.

I tried to fight the problem with OS and BIOS settings but it doesn't solve the problem completely. So, keeping laptop in sleep mode was always uncomfortable for me despite it's high utility.

And that's why I decided to create BackToSleep and now I am confident about safety of the device, my data and also I am sure that battery is charged as much as I left it. And the feature of automatically turning off the screen when locking the computer is handy too - I like it very much.

So, if you don't believe me, you may start an experiment - put your laptop in bag, turn it on and report here if it shuts down by sensors. But I wouldn't recommend it, better order a license for BackToSleep for low price today only :)

Joel Koltner Well, a couple of things here...

Google also shows 2.7M results for "Satan fried my laptop." How many of those do you think are actually correct?

It's clear that laptops are *designed* to shut down if they overheat (for whatever reason), but I'd certainly accept that they don't always do so due to various design errors or bugs of one sort of another. And I suppose I'd even accept that you might be able to do some damage to individual components in that not every single one has a temperature system (although battery packs, hard drives, and CPUs and GPUs all do).

The fact that your hard drive started showing SMART errors and the battery charge was reduced is possible related to it overheating, but it could also just be coincidence. There's just no good way to know without some formal experiments which -- as you might out -- are not really practical for the individual.

It's human nature to want to "connect the dots" of cause and effect even when none exist: One of the common examples being... there's a very strong correlation between murder rates in New York city and sales of ice cream cones... so surely ice cream makes people murderous, right?

I think there's solid utility to your software here, I just believe that if you're going to use fear-mongering to promote it you need to adhere to high standards to demonstrate there is a real likelihood of causing "permanent damage," and I don't see anything other than some anecdotal evidence to support such a claim. It'd be better if you stuck to acceptable generalities such as, "excess heat may shorten the lifetime of your computer."

I also think that trying to figure out why your laptop wakes up when it "shouldn't" in the first place is advisable prior to installing additional software (such as yours) that treats the symptoms but doesn't actually fix the real problem. Although I realize that (as in your case) fixing the real problem isn't always tractable, in which case your software would be a good workaround to try.

Vyacheslav Koldovskyy Dear Joel, you write very convincingly.

So, I spent some time and found multiple 'documented cases' (or at least pictures) of laptops being fried while in carrying case.
Think that's enough to show at least one. Here is a link with a picture of burned laptop:
And text from it: "..a guy left a laptop computer on overnight in a soft carrying case, plugged into a wall outlet. The computer, an Apple Titanium PowerBook G4, was in the "sleep" mode, with the carrying case closed. The next morning, the employee discovered that the computer had overheated to the point that the keys melted.."

Think that we use phrase "permanent damage" in such a way as to be. Believe me, there is no exaggeration and I couldn't agree that we have to soften it in this case. There is no 'fear-mongering promotion' in telling the truth.

Also I'd like to say that I've spent a lot of time before trying to find root of case what wakes the computer and it just waste of time - even if you do everything that needed to turn off waking timers, hardware settings etc., there is no guarantee that something won't turn it back. So I just decided to make a solution. Once and for all. I came up with the idea myself and make tiny and nice looking utility which just does it's job. If such utility where on the market before, I'd just better buy it myself. But it's unique, at least I couldn't find an alternative.

And yes, if someone believes that Satan has fried laptop it just means that people don't know true cause of the accident and BackToSleep may have prevented it :)

Vyacheslav Koldovskyy Works well, we'll ask admins to add Windows 8 support to features list.

Peter C1 On Your web-sites Downloads page Under the heading Ordering Notes You say/state the following:

"Free support and access to future upgrades"

However on the Bitsdujour Tab titled "The Fine Print" it states:

Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free for minor versions only. For versions after that, upgrades will require additional payment, which will be discounted by 50%.

My first question is: which statement is correct?

My second question is: did you have a previous "2012 R4" release dated May 6, 2012?

My Downloader is set to record the Files Date & Time from the Server and I have previously downladed BackToSleep 2012 R4 dated 6th May 2012 but according to your web-site the new 2012 R4 release is dated March 17, 2013.

Both files are identical in terms of size at 833,981 bytes and both files have an identical CRC,

SO Please Explain?

and many thanks indeed

Vyacheslav Koldovskyy Dear Peter, sentence on the website may be confusing, we'll update it with more clear phrase. Our general policy is: free updates withing current release, half price for any future major release.

As BackToSleep isn't going to change much because it is simple tool which just does its job well and customers completely satisfied with it, we may offer upgrades for future major releases with higher discount or for free at all.

Considering the installer - we decided to update the software for Windows 8 support, we tested it and found completely compatible. Also as we have no bugs/feature requests registered, we decided not to change the code at all, only to update the date/time of the release just to let others to know that the software is up to date and is supported. The version number is left the same too.

We aren't changing something working well without important reasons. If you are using BackToSleep you may suggest us how to improve it. Most customers tell us: "just leave it as it is". We listen to customers.

Nelson Therrien How do you count a "one license per computer"?

I have a laptop with two partitions on it: one for Windows 7 in French and one in English...

Since it installs in Windows (not in BIOS or other), that means I would need to install it in both my English and French partitions... will that work with one license, or I will need to buy two?
Mar 18 2013 at 5:31am Copy Link
Vyacheslav Koldovskyy Nelson, thank you for your question.
One licence = one physical PC, so if you use multiple OS instances or virtual machines on same computer, you need to buy only one license, just install and activate it on same computer as many times as you want.

Peter S Dear Vyacheslav, The question asked by Peter C1 is certainly one of the questions I wanted answered. (I wondered about Win 8 implementation, So I'm glad that You updated the program)

I originally purchased Your program back in Feb 3, 2012, (if I'm not mistaken) BUT I HAVEN'T YET iNSTALLED BackToSleep.

Reason: In 2012 I was still using a desktop PC, but I figured that with notebook prices coming down and down, that it was very likely my next computer would be a notebook of some variety within the next 12 to 18 months, AND - given that many of the larger screen notebooks have dual harddrive capacity, even owning 2 notebooks may not be out of the question [1 at home acting as a storage server or even use it as a "cloud server" & 1 Notebook PC that I could use in my day to day travels etc).

So I've now started to actively look to buy 2 x Notebooks, and once I have made my purchase(s), then I will set about installing "BackToSleep" on the notebook I will use on my travels.

Now, as my purchase was in Feb 2012, the usual 12 months free upgrades has already been and gone. (It's a chance You take when you buy because a percentage of Vendors who offer a discount either through Bitsdujour or elsewhere may only offer a discounted price once & only once, whereas some vendors may offer discounts once or twice per year each & every year

As a rule my software purchases are almost exclusively software with free upgrades for the Lifetime of that software program - and strictly speaking the program & license for "BackToSleep" isn't of the '.. free upgrades for life ..' category. I did say 'almost exclusively' and BackToSleep was a program I thought was worth breaking my rule for as it protects hardware which in turn helps protect software

So I'm also very glad that in Your second sentence/paragraph You answered the un-asked question about "... we may offer upgrades for future major releases with higher discount or for free at all. "

I.M.H.O. BackToSleep is peace-of-mind insurance for anyone who moves about with a notebook/laptop etc

Many thanks indeed
