    auto restart process


    my problem is that every time my laptop wakes up from sleep my fan control software resets its parameters to default, i need to kill the process and restart it and it will go back to normal.

    as i see it i need a batch file to auto run every 5 mins or ideally every time the laptop wakes from sleep (if this can be done).
    the batch file needs to kill the fan control program then instantly open the program backup.
    i have very limited knowledge when it comes to batch files and would like help in how to create one with what commands i need.

    thanks in advance

    What fan control software? With laptops.....one should never mess with the fan settings due to the heat build up from such a confined space.

    Hwinfo64
    Have been using it for years with no problems. The thing is my hp laptop has fast spinning fans even with no to little use.

    I use the same thing.....and no where in there does it make fan speed changes. It's just a monitoring software for temps and speeds among a few others. You'll have to take some screen shots and post them so I can see that.

    By default, your laptop fan speed is set to high. Some laptops will let you change the speed fan settings in the BIOS and that's run by the thermal cut off so you don't burn up your CPU.

    i need to kill the process
    - to which process are you referring?

    And what's your CPU usage after you resume? Could you post a screenshot of your task manager?
    To post a screenshot please use the Insert Image icon above your post to the left of the video icon. Thanks.

    OK so this is a shot of the default settings that HWINFO64 sets when you first install.

    I changed the numbers so the fan is as quiet as it can be on low cpu usage.

    The only thing I use the laptop for is watching mp4 files and light browsing so my cpu usage is very low at all times.
    I have tested these settings with running movies over a long period and it performs well.

    I have also looked at the cpu usage when resuming from sleep and there is hardly any difference. I am convinced that the issue is with the software not keeping the data in memory correctly so you get the default settings when it resumes from sleep. This is why I ask if I can somehow build a script to kill the process and instantly restart so the settings are how I want them.

    also note that ive been using this program with older versions of windows and the problem isn't there when I resume from sleep
