Note to self: software idea

I would like a software product that would allow me to define “profiles” of windows services to be running or stopped.  For instance, there are times when I’m not on my LAN at home and want to code on my laptop.  That entails having my sql server instance up and running.  But I don’t want it running the vast majority of the times hogging resources.

So if I could have this little app and just click a button to start/stop a group of services, that’d be great.

  1. Not a bad idea, easy enough to implement. A little XML to define the profiles, a little HTA app to read the XML file and start/stop the referenced services. Probably fit in about 500 lines of code, max.
