Suspends or hibernates the system, or requests that the system be suspended or hibernated.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

static member SetSuspendState : 
        state:PowerState *
        force:bool *
        disableWakeEvent:bool -> bool

Parameters

state
Type: System.Windows.Forms.PowerState

A PowerState indicating the power activity mode to which to transition.

force
Type: System.Boolean

true to force the suspended mode immediately; false to cause Windows to send a suspend request to every application.

disableWakeEvent
Type: System.Boolean

true to disable restoring the system's power status to active on a wake event, false to enable restoring the system's power status to active on a wake event.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the system is being suspended, otherwise, false.

If an application does not respond to a suspend request within 20 seconds, Windows determines that it is in a non-responsive state, and that the application can either be put to sleep or terminated. Once an application responds to a suspend request, however, it can take whatever time it needs to clean up resources and shut down active processes.
