Mobility warnings support efficient power usage.



CA1600: Do not use idle process priority

Do not set process priority to Idle. Processes that have System.Diagnostics.ProcessPriorityClass.Idle will occupy the CPU when it would otherwise be idle, and will therefore block standby.

CA1601: Do not use timers that prevent power state changes

Higher-frequency periodic activity will keep the CPU busy and interfere with power-saving idle timers that turn off the display and hard disks.
