Debugging windows standby issue
Posted on 2008-11-09
I have a following issue: one of processes in the system, is running a thread, which sets SetThreadExecutionState to ES_SYSTEM_REQUIRED. This prevents system from entering standby. I've disabled all custom software, and most of unneeded services/drivers, and it still happens. It happens only if there is network connection active.
I need a way to debug and find out which thread does this. If I could use SoftIce, i could set breakpoint on SetThreadExecutonState, but SoftIce does not work on XP SP3. I tried to use Syser, but couldn't get it to work.
I'm open for all suggestions.
