    FWIW, I thought I'd share this one.

    Office2010 requires the service "Office Software Protection Platform" (osppsvc.exe). That service does not need to hang around all the time (which it does by default). The following registry entry will make it stop when it's inactive for a while.

    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\OfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform
    
    (DWORD value) InactivityShutdownDelay = N (seconds)
