When I send a command to Google Home it replies with "OK getting trigger command". I would like it to be completely silent or simply play a short single tone to acknowledge it received the command. Is there a way to do this with trigger command?

Can I change Google Home's default response to Trigger Command skills?
Is the Goolge Home TriggerCMD app working?
For the last week or so every time I use TriggerCMD on Google Home it responds with "Trigger Command is unavailable". Earlier today I tried sending/reinstalling the TriggerCMD service to my Google Home again and reinstalling on my host PC but I am still receiving an error with every command I speak to it.
Is the latest version of TriggerCMD on Google Home broken?
Is there a way to have Alexa routine setup computer to sleep mode?
I already have a script that forces my computer to sleep and have a trigger command called "sleep" that will put the computer into sleep mode.
I have an Alexa routine called "Alexa, good night" that turns off all my lights and turns down the Nest thermostat. Is there a way to have it execute my sleep trigger cmd?
Right now I have to say "Alexa, ask trigger command to run sleep on main computer" but ideally I could bundle that into the good night routine.
Is there anyway to accomplish this?
Using custom commands with Alexa
With Google Home I can program a custom command such as "OK Google, pause show" and it will run the command on my Google Home: "Ask trigger command to pause show on tv computer". Trigger command then runs a simple batch file that presses the space bar and pauses the show.
Is there a way to do this with Alexa? I've tried the Alexa Blueprints Q&A and when instead of Alexa executing "Ask trigger command to show on tv computer" she simply responds with that message.
I know I can say "Alexa ask trigger command to pause show on tv" but that is much longer than just "pause show".
