Simulating tombstone (suspended state) on Windows Phone 7 emulator
Since Windows Phone 7 doesn’t have multitask, at least for now, Microsoft implemented a Tombstone notion in WP7 apps.
So depending on you app you might want to save the current state just in case the app really closes.
Simulating this on the emulator took me awhile to get it right.
Press F5 on Visual Studio do start debugging your App.
So you have to Press F5 and keep an eye on the compiler. When you receive a “Deploy Success” message
quickly press the Back button on the simulator
You app should now start and receive the Activated event.
