Network and Internet Enable or Disable Modern Standby Network Connectivity in Windows 11


  • Staff
Power_banner.png

In Windows 10 and Windows 11, there are two power models for PCs: S3 and Modern Standby (S0 Low Power Idle). The S3 power model is an older standard and is not capable of the instant on that consumers expect from modern devices. Modern Standby is capable of leveraging all the capabilities of a modern chipset and can be integrated across the breadth of tablets and PCs today. The first iteration of Modern Standby was Connected Standby, which first shipped in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. Modern Standby expands upon the Windows 8.x Connected Standby concept, allowing for flexibility in component selection and the ability for the OS to manage network connectivity in standby.

Windows 10 and Windows 11 Modern Standby (Modern Standby) expands the Windows 8.1 Connected Standby power model. Connected Standby, and consequently Modern Standby, enable an instant on / instant off user experience, similar to smartphone power models. Just like the phone, the S0 low power idle model enables the system to stay connected to the network while in a low power mode.

Although Modern Standby enables an instant on/off user experience like Connected Standby, Modern Standby is more inclusive than the Windows 8.1 Connected Standby power model. Modern Standby allows for market segments previously limited to the Traditional Sleep (S3) power model to take advantage of the low power idle model. Example systems include systems based on rotational media and hybrid media (for example, SSD + HDD or SSHD) and/or a NIC that doesn’t support all of the prior requirements for Connected Standby.

Modern Standby systems can be connected (enabled), disconnected (disabled), or managed by Windows to allow network connectivity during S0 standby. This behavior is dictated by the hardware and/or by configuration.
  • Connected Modern Standby will allow you to stay connected to the network while in standby to still receive and get notifications about email, VoIP calls, and such, but it will use more battery.
  • Disconnected Modern Standby will allow longer battery life, but you will no longer have the advantages of staying connected to the network while in standby.
  • Managed by Windows will allow Windows to manage network connectivity during standby.
On any Modern Standby system (whether connected or disconnected), the system remains in S0 while in standby, allowing the following scenarios to work:
  • Background activity
  • Faster resume from a low power state
On systems that are connected while in standby, wakes based on specific network patterns may also be set by the operating system to enable apps to receive the latest content such as incoming email, VoIP calls, or news articles.

I've followed the steps to disable connected standby using the registry files on this page. After doing this and rebooting my laptop, there was no difference. My laptop still retains Bluetooth and WiFi connections during sleep. What could be the problem?

Hello, and welcome. :-)

Which option did you use? I'll test using the same.

The policy notes used in options 3 and 4 say it only applies to WLAN networks, but I don't see any limitations mentions in Microsoft docs for option 1 and 2.

Just to note, this only affects while in modern standby mode (S0 sleep state) and not the usual S3 sleep state.

In addition, this will not turn off the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi settings. Only prevent them from connecting while in standby.

Wow, that was quick, thank you! And thanks also for the warm welcome! 👍
I tried option four, the reg file option, and I chose the Disable file in both instances.
Maybe I've misunderstood what this should accomplish: I was hoping I'd be able to terminate any Bluetooth and WiFi connections simply by activationg S0 sleep mode, but from your reply it seems I may have been wrong, and these fixes will only prevent new connections from being made, but will not kill any active connections - is that right?
I'll try options 1 and 2 also, maybe they act differently!

Your thought is correct. It should stop network connections while in S0 modern standby mode.

What was the result of your
PowerCfg -a
check?

My own S0 computer definitely disconnected WiFi networks as soon as S0 kicked in [when I had it set to Disconnected standby].

"S0 sleep mode" - S0 Modern standby [aka S0 Low power idle] is not a sleep mode but an idle condition.

Right, so according to the powercfg command, I should be good:
1656065079049.png

However, even with these settings, if I click the power button on the start menu and select Sleep, the laptop retains its wifi connection and sends and receives a few kilobytes every minute, as verified in the menu on my wifi router.

I haven't tried options 1 and 2 yet, I'll do that later today.

You do not have Sleep available on your computer. You have S0 Modern standby instead.
- Your Start menu should not even set that Sleep entry to appear. Did you add it manually?

S0 Modern standby kicks in when Power options turns off the monitor.
If you have set Disconnected standby then it will disconnect at that moment.
- Event viewer records the transitions. I have provided a Custom view definition in the next post.

There are, in effect, four Power/Computer states for an S0 Modern standby [aka S0 Low power idle] computer
- Computer on, Monitor on {Work can be done on the computer}
- Computer on, Monitor off = S0 {The monitor turning off initiates S0 Modern standby i.e. idle}. S0 progressively shuts down user-initiated processes. No user-desired activities start, only MS-desired ones such as WU & their built-in email app.
- Hibernate
- Off

Event viewer, Custom view definition: Power - Sleep-Hibernate-S0 transitions

Here is an Event viewer, Custom view definition that shows transitions between power states: S3 Sleep, Hibernate & S0 Modern standby.
I like to have the same configurations on all my computers - this definition can be used on proper computers [S3 computers] & on S0 Modern standby computers.
- On my proper computers [S3 computers], this Custom view records entering & leaving S3 Sleep & Hibernation.
- On my S0 computer, this Custom view records entering & leaving S0 Modern standby, entering & leaving Hibernation.
- On my S0 computer, event records are misleadingly labelled as relating to S0 Connected standby whichever state is in force - Connected/Disconnected standby.

I have attached a zipped copy of this Custom view definition to this post.
- Unzip this file
- Import the definition into Event viewer using the control on the right-hand side of the Event viewer window, Import Custom view.
- - You'll be asked to give each view a name and I suggest using the names I gave the files but it's entirely up to you.​
- Then you can select Custom views on the left-hand side & then select this one.

Example results
System hibernates despite "hibernate after" set to "never"-power-sleep-hibernate-s0-transitions.png
- The lines above the selected ones are entering & leaving S0 Modern standby.
- The two selected lines are entering & leaving Hibernation

Resuming from S3 Sleep & resuming from Hibernation can only be distinguished, in a computer that has both, by looking in the Details tab of the resume EventID 1
- Hiber* entries that are greater than 0 indicate resuming from hibernation.
- Hiber* entries that have the value 0 indicate resuming from S3 Sleep.

Resume from Hibernate, Details tab
System hibernates despite "hibernate after" set to "never"-resume-hibernate-details-tab.png
Resume from S3 Sleep, Details tab

All the best,
Denis

Right, so to avoid confusion I will continue to use Microsoft's own terminology, which refers to S0 Modern Standby as a Sleep Mode.
I've checked two Windows 11 laptops with s0 mode enabled, both in their default configuration, and the Sleep option appears on both.

Thanks for the custom view export! If I choose Sleep from the start menu and then wake the laptop, two new items appear. One says "The system is entering Modern Standby. Reason: Screen Off Request" and the other says "The system is exiting Modern Standby. Reason: Input Keyboard".
In this Modern Standby state, which the powercfg command refers to as "Standby S0 Power Idle (Network Disconnected)", my laptop will retain it's wifi connection, and it will try to reconnect with the last Bluetooth audio device it remembers.

In that case, I agree it's a fault condition.

Whilst I vaguely recall a similar thread [here or in TenForums], I did not make any notes about it or keep a link to it.

Since the powercfg command shows the desired setting already, I don't think trying options 1 and 2 will make any difference. I'll try to reinstall Win11 on a third laptop and check if it works there. All the laptops I have available are Dell Latitudes, I don't know if that makes any difference.

I've reinstalled Windows 11 21H2 on a Latitude 7390 and applied fixes number two and three, rebooted, then verified with the powercfg command that I should be using "Standby S0 Network Disconnected", then verified with the event viewer that my laptop is going into Modern Standby status.
Still, when closing the lid on my laptop or selecting Sleep in the menu, it retains all Bluetooth and Wifi connections.

I suppose you could test by sharing something on the laptop to another device on your home network, and seeing if you are still able to access the share while the laptop is in S0 standby from the other device.

This is specifically what I get when the laptop goes to sleep:
- No "Disconnect" sound from my Bluetooth headset.
- Cannot connect Bluetooth headset to phone while sleeping laptop is within Bluetooth range.
- Laptop still visible as "Connected" in Bluetooth menu on my phone.
- Laptop still visible as "Connected" in wifi router menu.

I've tested this on several newly installed Windows 11 machines now, and I can definitely confirm that the steps listed in this article do not achieve the advertised effect.
By following the steps in this guide, you *will* be able to put your laptop into a "Network disconnected" sleep mode.
The problem, however, is that in this mode, your laptop will not actually *disconnect* from any network, your laptop will just *limit the traffic* that flows over that network.

This means that even if you follow the steps in this article to put your laptop into "Network disconnected" sleep mode, your laptop will still retain the wifi hotspot connection you're sharing from your phone - as well as the bluetooth connection to your non-multipoint headset, preventing you from using it with your phone instead.

Should option four result in changes visible in UI somewhere? After applying in Windows 11 Pro 22H2, not getting the setting in the power plan be grayed out.

You can use the tutorial below to see if it reports:

Standby (S0 Low Power Idle) Network Connected

OR

Standby (S0 Low Power Idle) Network Disconnected

Please note that, Windows 10 version 2004 onwards, the hidden registry setting that this tutorial applies to is deprecated.
It means that the setting may still work, but at some point in the future Microsoft could decide to make it stop working. You'd have to verify that it still works, each time after a Windows update is installed that upgrades Windows to a new build number.

Also please note, on some systems it may be possible to use a separate setting that is included in the Power Profile. As an example of this, you can refer to the top of page 5 in this document:
