What applications need to be stopped so a laptop can be put into Standby? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've got an end-user with an HP laptop running WinXP Pro x86 w/4 GB RAM and a decent processor.  Our company uses SCCM's Configuration Manager client  on each computer.  Today I had a ticket for this user; his laptop wouldn't go into Standby when he selected it from the Start Menu - it stayed active.  On investigation, I saw that the process "ccmsetup.exe" prevented this (an Info entry in the System log; it was doing a repair of some sort.)  It got me to thinking .... are there other apps I should be aware of (primarily Microsoft in an Enterprise environment) that would prevent a laptop frm going into Standby?
