an excellent webpage about running win16-systems in 2001 is
http://www.i24.com/en/win31/tips/w31mm_en.htm
it has links to every software/patch/upgrade and much about internet. What
was most fascinating to me: running video for windows on a 4/25 aero with 8
MB RAM and 16 colors. And:  The desktop-surface calmira: lets your desktop
look like win95, comes with many win 95 features (windows explorer etc.) but
is just a windows 3.1 program in _one_ folder and doesn't change any system
files. (They are working on long filenames but they seem to be pretty
close...)

Subject: Re: Aero 4/25 & Windows 95

I have icons set up within Windows to let me switch between Standby
and Hibernation. I let it drop into standby if there's a long pause
while I'm working, and then hibernate when I've finished.

This is for Windows 3.1, but I expect that you can adapt it for 95.
In the Program Manger, select File > New > Program . Assuming that
STBY_HIB.COM is installed in C:\CPQDOS, set up the properties as:

        Name:           Standby
        Command:        C:\CPQDOS\STBY_HIB.COM S
        Directory:      C:\CPQDOS
        Shortcut:       None

Then make another (you could copy the Standby icon and just change
the name and argument):

        Name:           Hibernate
        Command Line:   C:\CPQDOS\STBY_HIB.COM H
        Directory:      C:\CPQDOS
        Shortcut:       None

I'm translating from the French version of Windows, so this might
not correspond exactly. Add icons to taste (I use the Hand from
PROGMAN.EXE). Do not select 'Minimize on use'.

The important bit is the S or H argument which tells STBY_HIB the
mode you want to set, and so prevents it prompting for it.
