  1. I have Lights-Out v 1.5.1 running on Windows Home Server 2011 installed on HP EX495.
    When I am trying to schudule the uptime in the calendar, under Uptime end option, Suspend and Hibernate option are disabled. The way I understood is that at Uptime (no need for the server to be running sleep now)  you would like the server to go to Suspend or Hibernate mode instead of Do nothing, Shutdown or Reboot. What am I missing?
