That's it. I will still work on the program to improve it. Use revoSleep-Board to post your opinion, problem or some hint to improve revoSleep!

NOTE: I can not guarantee that the program won't damage your computer. So use it carefully - using revoSleep at your own risk. Setting Hard Disks to standby-mode very often, can damage the devices. So don't switch the sleep-mode every time.
