App doesn't support suspend


And that causes application validation fail.

Consider adding this in ordre to fix it just before the app start in default.js

app.addEventListener("suspending", function (eventObject) {
    var host = document.getElementById("contentHost");
    host.winControl && host.winControl.suspending && host.winControl.suspending(eventObject);

}, true);

Since there is nothing to manage with this application before the app suspend, I don't see it would be a problem. Do you have any step by step procedure to reproduce any problem you got with the state management of the app? It should not be a problem for certification, and I got a couple of apps in the Windows 8 Store with the actual template.

I just launched the app certification kit and then got the application not valid.
The report was saying the application did not handle suspending.
So I just added this and it worked

Do you have the latest version of the WACK tool, version 2.2 http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/apps/jj572486 ? We are now around 10 apps, and got no problem. Sorry about my questions, but I just want to be sure we won't add any code that we don't need.

Yes using version 2.2. Maybe caused by my old and not powerful laptop?
Anyway if no other user has this issue I think we can close this case an maybe re-open it if somebody complains something similar
