Re: Sleep mode
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
So I gather I can’t put sleepMode=True in an ini file named after the app?
Not a problem, however. I know I can handle what you suggest.
Actually, what I’m using it for is the VBNS (Virtual Braille ‘n Speak) emulator. You wrote something similar, and I think it put NVDA to sleep automatically.
Anyway, I will try what you suggest, as I want NVDA to go to sleep upon launch of DOSBOX-X.EXE and wake up after I exit or alt-tab away.
Or, I think your program is in the Talking DosBox distro, so I may just grab it and run it.
Thanks much, since this allows me to experiment with both without worrying about using NVDA+shift+S each time I launch the program.

The easiest way to do this is to enable the scratchpad in NVDA's
then create a file in appModules called appname.py, where appname is the
name of your executable without the extension. Put this in it:
You can also create an addon, which would be the better option if you
wanted to redistribute this, but that's a bit more involved.
