Currently, I have a Surface Book 2 that supports Microsoft InstantGo, which allows certain programmes to continue functioning, even when the computer is asleep. However, it appears that no other programmes other than Microsoft's own support it – which, though infuriating, is understandable.

Because of that, I have been using Caffeine to keep my computer awake: however, it would be fantastically convenient if I was able to add a pause timeout setting to the action centre, as one of the quick settings. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

1. Go into power settings, advanced, set hdd turn off to 0 (never), same with screen saver and sleep 0

2. Remove caffeine

3. Open regedit, navigate to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ActionCenter\Quick Actions\All

4. Copy the last one, rename and update to bat file with this

shutdown -h -t 60

60 is in seconds, change to what you want
