Is it possible to enter "Connected Standy" by software command?

    Question

  •     In Nvidia Tegra Win8 system, we can enter "Connected Standby" by press power button. But how to use software command to enter "Connected Standy"? The tool "pwrtest" can not understand "Connect standby" power state, or is any other utility availabe?

  • Currently, no existing system supports Connected Standby.  Connected Standby will only be enabled on systems that are designed for it. For traditional desktops / laptops, it's business as usual (sleep, hibernate, etc.). The OEM has to put a special marker into the firmware to indicate that the system is designed for Connected Standby. Because of this, any existing system today will not enter Connected Standby; only new systems released with and designed for the next version of Windows will use this feature. This information is from the post by Jeffrey Tippet (MSFT).


    Please look at this information in this thread about Connected Standby. It goes into depth about the Connected Standby State.

  • Do you have any plans to update pwrtest to support connected standby validation? Is there another tool which could be used to validate connected standby? I am also having trouble finding any documentation on pwrtest 6.2. Could you point me in the right direction?

  • There has not been any information released about tools that support "Connected Standby". I have not heard about any updates to pwrtest.

    The link in my previous thread has alot of good information about "Connected Standby" state.
