  • Step 2

When you downloaded OblyTile you can download the tiles from different places and use what ever picture you want.

I’ve downloaded mine from Here

  • Step 3 (Shutdown)

Ok time for the first Tile.

To make the Shutdown tile you have to type.

Program path: C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe

Program arguments: -s -t 0

Shutdown

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Press the “Hide Tile Name” if you don’t wan’t any text in the tile.

And then select the picture you wan’t for your tile, remember to add both tile Image and small image

the small image is what it shows when seach for an app in metro.

Now select Create tile and it will add the tile to Windows Metro.

  • Step 4 (Reboot)

It is the same as step 3(Shutdown)

Exept you have to select another icon and change the Program argument to: -r -t 0

Program path: C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe

Program arguments: -r -t 0

Reboot

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Step 5 (Lock)

I think you get how this works by now.

Program Path: C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe

Program arguments:  user32.dll,LockWorkStation

lock

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Step 6 (Sleep)

Program Path: c:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe

Program Argument: powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,1,0

sleep

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If it goes to Hypernation instead of sleep, you have to disable Hypernation.

Type CMD then right click the Command Prompt app and select ‘Run as administrator’ from the panel at the bottom to open an elevated Command Prompt.

Select ‘Yes’ if a User Account Control warning appears.

In CMD type: powercfg -h off

And hit Enter

This command will disable Hypernation and put the computer to sleep.

cmd hypernation off
