D3COLD_REQUEST_PERST_DELAY callback function

Enables the function device object (FDO) to convey its requirement for a fixed delay time between the PME_TO_Ack message is received at the PCI Express Downstream Port that originated the PME_Turn_Off message, and the time the platform asserts PERST# to the slot during the corresponding endpoint’s or PCI Express Upstream Port’s transition to D3cold while the system is in an ACPI operational state.



NTSTATUS D3coldRequestPerstDelay(
  PVOID Context,
  ULONG DelayInMicroSeconds



[In_reads_opt(Inexpressible("varies"))] The handle to the device.


[In] The delay in units of microsecond. The maximum value is 10000 microseconds.

Return Value

Return STATUS_SUCCESS if the operation succeeds. Otherwise, return an appropriate NTSTATUS Values error code. For more information, see NTSTATUS Values.


A device driver that successfully queries for the GUID_D3COLD_AUX_POWER_AND_TIMING_INTERFACE interface receives a pointer to a D3COLD_AUX_POWER_AND_TIMING_INTERFACE structure in which the driver sets the RequestPerstDelay member to a pointer to its implementation of the D3COLD_REQUEST_PERST_DELAY callback function.

  • For a multi-function device, only Function 0 is allowed to call this routine.
