SysInfo - Last Sleep/Wake time

Post by ikarus1969 »

Hi guys,

to complete my system skins i started to play around with the new SysInfoTypes of the SysInfo-plugin: LAST_SLEEP_TIME and LAST_WAKE_TIME.

I get a strange result: the value of the current time is less than the value of LAST_SLEEP_TIME.

Why is this?

Have you considered the possibility you've traveled back in time since the last time you went to sleep? Nodded off next to your flux capacitor, perhaps?

Or maybe the sleep time is UTC/GMT, while current time is local? :confused:

All are valid theories, I think... ;-)

Maybe one of the paradox that happen when travelling back and forth in time?

Measure=Time
Format=%A, %B %#d, %Y %#I:%M %p

[MeasureSleep]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=SysInfo
SysInfoType=LAST_SLEEP_TIME

[MeasureSleepTime]
Measure=Time
TimeStamp=[MeasureSleep]
DynamicVariables=1
Format=%A, %B %#d, %Y %#I:%M %p

[MeasureWake]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=SysInfo
SysInfoType=LAST_WAKE_TIME

[MeasureWakeTime]

i guess i'll wait a little bit. Some problems tend to solve themselves alone (sometimes).

No messing that i'm aware of. It's a quite new system (bought in March right before the shops were closed due to corona) and then used it for home-office. I just changed the time-server to a local one to have the time synchronized but that's all.

So what happens when you actually sleep and then wake the computer?

I remember some problems when user logon-time was introduced to rainmeter in conjunction with a fast-boot-option. Could that fast-boot interfer with the sleep/wake functionality?
