Advanced Power Management (APM)

How can I access advanced power management functions (APM) in Win 2k thru delphi?

In dos I could just fire an interrupt like the one described in
http://www.ctyme.com/intr/rb-1414.htm . In Windows I get an exception.
I'd like to set the wakeup timer to wake up the system from soft-off state (S5) not via BIOS Setup but via Delphi Code.

Is there a Windows dll I can call? An api function?

Tnx Tommyjunge

    Hi,

    After i've done some research i found something that might help u it is a function placed in the KERNEL32.dll
    [code]
    POWERRET VPOWERD_Set_Resume_Timer(
    LPPOWERTIME pPowerTime
    );
    [/code]
    I think u should take a look at this page

    I Hope this helps u,
