Windows* 8 Desktop App - Connected Standby


Connected Standby is a new feature introduced by Microsoft in Windows 8*. The use case on the tablet/mobile systems is similar to that on phones like Instant ON and Always Connected. Intel® dual-core Atom™ Z2760 (code name CloverTrail) is the first Intel platform to support Connected Standby. Interesting applications can be developed for Connected Standby to further showcase the platform capabilities like push email, multiplayer games, etc.

In this sample application, we showcase the use of Connected Standby and demonstrate the use of the API to register the background task with the timer for periodic execution in the background, so when the system enters standby, the task executes and generates an execution log. It is a simple interface and application for any ISV to use inside their apps.
