No, manually means that you or an application have to start and stop it.

Hello tz frantic.



Just a word of caution, if you're not sure it may be better not to change settings of services as it is possible to disable the PC by doing so.

As BFT says, even with the Black Viper guidance, you want to be careful because the activated services are different depending on your software configuration. If you are not a real expert, better leave them alone. The implications of a service are not always obvious. Example: In Vista the snipping tool works only if the Tablet PC service is activated - go figure.

To put it in a nutshell, selecting manual may or may not cause the service to start when needed. When making changes of this sort, do them one at a time, so that you can determine if it will function properly or not. Chances are, once the service is started, it will remain so until you reboot. It is a good idea to only reset one service at a time, because services are often interdependent, and disabling one may disrupt others unexpectedly. If you check, Black Viper does list interdependent services.

If your purpose is to reduce boot time, you might consider using the "automatic delay" setting.
