Running the test

Before you run the test, complete the test setup as described in the test requirements: Mobile Broadband Testing Prerequisites.

The test verifies that a register state change from the device will correctly wake the computer from Connected Standby. The test will put the machine into Connected Standby and wait for a register state change. The user is expected to trigger the register state change by blocking or stopping the signal.
