Symptoms

Assume that you run an application on a Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3-based device. A thread of the application calls the Sleep function. In this situation, the thread runs for a while, and then becomes inactive. Additionally, when you check the kernel memory dump file, you can see that the thread was not rescheduled even though the thread is still alive.

Note This issue typically occurs when the system is running at 100% CPU usage.
