Q. How do I disable Connected Standby on a device?
A. If a device supports Connected Standby, you should take advantage of that capability. Only modern applications that are registered can send a limited amount of network traffic at a scheduled interval, which means Connected Standby generally offers only benefits. However, if you want to use basic sleep instead of Connected Standby, you can disable the feature as follows:
- Start the registry editor (regedit.exe).
- Move to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power.
- Double-click CsEnabled and set to 0, then click OK.
