    We want to get more details on these registry values regarding powermanagement issue in our device

    It says:

    What registry settings enable activity timers in GWES, the file system, the network stack, and the PCMCIA bus driver?

    GWES reads an event name from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\GWE\ActivityEvent. If an event is named in this key and its handle can be opened, the event will be signaled every time the GWES user input thread wakes up to handle an input event.

    The CXPORT module in the networking stack will periodically signal an activity timer event named by HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\CXPORT\NoIdleTimerEvent whenever at least one socket is in the connected state. Many OEMs may choose to set the "NoIdleTimerReset" flag in the registry if they are using activity timers.

    The PCMCIA driver will signal an activity timer event named by HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\PCMCIA\StatusChangeActivityEvent whenever a card is ejected or inserted.
