Hello,

I am trying to understand the affect on socket based network applications when the system moves into S3 state. Would the transition in and out of S3 be seamless for these applications (assuming of course that the wake on LAN, wake on wlan driver/firmware keeps the "other end" happy.

As an extension to this question: Are network interfaces brought down before the system is taken to S3

Any reading material/white papers that discuss this Are there any tools that I may be able to run to check the behavior Preliminary investigation on my end indicates that messenger type applications are happy (as long as the Wake on interface keeps the other end happy). But I wanted to know if this is by design on Windows. Is this behavior any different between XP and Vista

If there is a more relevant discussion group, please point me to it.

Thanks

Sailesh
