Put windows to sleep after Rendering done

Recommended Posts

This, very likely, is not Chief Architect question, however if you guys have any tips for me, it will help alot.

We keep multiple views for rendering over night time. These usually get over in couple of hours time. Say for example my rendering will go on for next 5 hours. However I force my laptop to stay awake for whole night.

How do I make my laptop go-to Sleep after rendering is done.

Right now I am using Power option >> Sleep >> "Never" in windows settings.

We have multiple CA Interior 8 licenses. My team uses laptops with windows 8 & some with windows 10.

Please if you have any smart tips for my laptops to go sleep after work is done. How do you guys handle this situation ?

Thanks for help

Others may suggest more exotic procedures but I would just render in the back ground while I worked on other plans, that way you can get your work done without any unusual measures to take.

Nitin,

 

My PC sometimes requires about ten or fifteen minutes for professional looking renders using its Ray-Tracer function. What software do you have? What is your PC hardware like?

We are spending about 20-25 minutes to render single view. My team has got in to habit of completing design work & towards end of the day, keep 10-12 views for render. We use Standard Ray trace inbuilt inside Chief Architect Interior version.

 

Not all machines/config are same. Typical hardware we have is : Intel i5 3rd Gen CPU, 8GB RAM, 1 TB Hard drive, 2 GB Intel graphics Card

 

Thanks

Is there a particular reason you need the computer to go to sleep after the Raytraces are finished. You can set the screen to turn-off, this will not affect your Raytracing. Once the Raytraces are complete your system won't really be doing anything so it is just idling, not much power consumption if that is what you are trying to achieve.

      Is there a time effective way to do drywall returns? The attached image is the look I am going for, which I had to do with polyline solids. I have tried all the solutions in this forum. https://chieftalk.chiefarchitect.com/topic/23244-q-window-how-to-do-a-sheetrock-return/?_fromLogin=CA2&_processLogin=11&csrfKey=e715967502c760b691e12966cba733f8&ref=&code=CSFNSc4fApHaoLJkMIIN_zkZ
       
      1. I am not interested in workarounds (polyline solids, molding profiles, window treatments)
      2. Simply turning off the frame has the fir framing exposed. See second image. I do not want to create new wall types that are solid drywall.
      3. I would be happy if you could paint the frame the drywall color, but it seems Chief does not have the capability to separate the frame from the sash.
       
      I would think that this is a very common detail, and it would be a huge oversight for all the various industries using this program to not have drywall returns. Thank you all for your time.

      Is there a way to do a cedar lintel above your windows? I am not having any luck. I am going to attach a picture of a house to show what I am trying to achieve. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. I am still fairly new to Chief and I am trying to learn as much as I can.

      is it possible to create windows with drywall returns and a wood sill.  When I create a window I choose these options.
      1. no interior casing
      2. use interior sill , cap #1, inset 3" extend 0, no apron, no wrap
      3. uncheck, "has frame"
       
      the sill disappears into the drywall return at the base of the window.  
       
      pictures below,
      untitled 1 is an image from my chief of a window I was working on,
      picture of window with sill is a quick google images search of drywall return with wood sill.  My customer wants something like that without the dog-ears and the extension.

      Does anyone know ho fix issues I have on this commercial remodeling addition?
      1) Windows and bar cabinets are not against the wall!
      2) wall is not showing on full camera looking back toward where it attaches to the existing building. Wall existing is brick on inside, unless I decide to cover it with gypsum bd!
      3) I have a 10 ft. plate with 9 ft dropped ceiling 2 ft x 4 ft acoustic tile in new addition.
