      Hi all,
      I am a project leader for a Surface Pro 4 deployment for about 110 users.
      The SP4 will be running Windows 10, with a custom image. The image to be honest is relatively standard, with the usual bunch of apps on.
      I need to understand if Windows 10 keeps the nic alive when the Surface is asleep.
      My understanding and perhaps I am wrong, is that the nic will stay alive and receive emails etc. and if connected to a vpn, that will also remain active. However, when you ping the Surface and then put the Surface asleep, the ping drops.
      The Wi-fi boxes for keeping the wifi alive which are under options under Settings \Power and Sleep \ are on.
      Does anyone know what the expected behaviour is?

      Many thanks

        Hi Matt,
        I believe that’s correct but I think it depends on what you are trying to do. Here is an article about Win 10 Modern Standby that may help you:
