Great answer. I've seen this workaround posted before:Right click computer and choose Manage.. leave it open
put your computer to sleep
Wake it up
Go to Event Viewer in the management window you have open
Windows Logs / System scroll down the list a few to EventID 1 'Power TroubleShooter The system has resumed from sleep.
You can use this for a trigger on Task Scheduler. ....
Open task scheduler there
Click task scheduler library / then Right Click it , and Create Task...
Triggers ... New .... On Workstation Unlock.
think you figure out the rest. Open a .txt file or pop a message box.. whatever.
|You can tick the “Run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed” checkbox on the Settings tab for the task. That's for tasks at least that are scheduled regularly and fail to start due to sleep/hibernate/shutdown.|
There doesn't seem to be a trigger "On waking from sleep", but you can probably use the “On Event” trigger. The interesting events seem to be from “Kernel-Power” and “Power-Troubleshooter”. System sleep generates an event from Kernel-Power with event ID 42. Wakeup is an event from Power-Troubleshooter with event ID 1.
