Connected Standby ...


  • Trying to write both a desktop app and metro app.

    Without physical hardware, how can I test my app for connected standby ?

  • Hi,

    I was not clear your point, if you want to test your app, you can follow this document.

  • A typical Store app will work in Connected Standby if you have applied our prescribed guidance for development (background tasks for example).

    See this blog on guidance (section How software influences power consumption)

    At this time, testing Connected Standby on supporting hardware is the only accurate way to test this feature.

  • I'm asking mainly about desktop apps that run in both user mode and also as a service.

    What are expected of services when the screen is off?

  • Are there *any* systems available or announced that support connected standby?  Seems like a great technology, I'd like to get some systems to test out.
