Can Windows Live ID Service, WLIDSVC.EXE, start when needed if startup is changed to Manual?  I don't want to disable it as noted another thread (Windows Live ID Service - Safe to disable? Asked by: jdana, Solved by: Bardobrave).  Changing startup type to Manual resolved some handle-release issues that were slowing Windows shut-down, but I do occasionally need it to run.  Thanks for your help!
