Hi,
Currently sql process showing 1500+ process which most of them are with "sleeping" status and only 20 processes are running, I would like to know how could I kill all the "sleeping" status without restarting the mssqlserver services  and I dont think kill the spid one by one is the greate idea, anyone could help me here??

The quickest way to kill them all would be to terminate the application that has them open. It sounds as if whatever code is connecting to the database is not explicitly disposing of the database connections.

SELECT @spid = MIN(spid),@cnt = COUNT(*)

FROM master..sysprocesses

WHERE dbid = DB_ID(@dbname) AND spid != @@SPID AND status = 'sleeping'

WHILE @spid IS NOT NULL
