Any help would be appreciated on this. I was directed to this forum from my post on the Windows Store forum (please see my post at:
My question: Can I write my SignalR Windows Store client app such that the app will automatically "awaken" (if sleeping) when data arrives from my SignalR server? Such functionality is provided in WinRT via using a "ControlChannelTrigger: in conjunction
with WebSockets. However WebSockets do not give me all the functionality provided by SignalR and comes with its own set of limitations.

I'm honestly not sure. I highly doubt that you can "awaken" the background up from a server.

This issue is described in the MSDN article "Staying connected in the Background" (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/jj662741.aspx ). My app cannot use
WNS as it is a LOB app that will not be placed in the store. I'd like the capabilities provided by the ControlChannelTrigger (described in the article) but not be restricted to (Web)Sockets. While SignalR will use WebSockets if it is available on the server, SignalR provides
more capabilities (compatibility with older technologies, support for broadcast messaging, etc.) than WebSockets alone.
