PowerDownAllocate rule (wdm)

The PowerDownAllocate rule specifies that an FDO and FIDO driver should not allocate memory when processing an IRP_MN_SET_POWER request for a SystemPowerState transition that goes from s0 to [S1...S5].

This rule only applies to FDO and FIDO drivers.

Driver model: WDM

How to test

At compile time

Run Static Driver Verifier and specify the PowerDownAllocate rule.

Use the following steps to run an analysis of your code:
  1. Prepare your code (use role type declarations).
  2. Run Static Driver Verifier.
  3. View and analyze the results.
