The Resume-Service cmdlet sends a resume message to the Windows Service Controller for each of the specified services. If they have been suspended, they will resume service.
If they are currently running, the message is ignored. You can specify the services by their service names or display names, or you can use the InputObject parameter to pass
a service object that represents the services that you want to resume.

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

PS C:\>resume-service sens

This command resumes the System Event Notification service (the service name is represented in the command by "sens") on the local computer. The command uses the Name
parameter to specify the service name of the service, but the command omits the parameter name because the parameter name is optional.

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 2 --------------------------

PS C:\>get-service | where-object {$_.Status -eq "Paused"} | resume-service

This command resumes all of the suspended (paused) services on the computer. The first command gets all of the services on the computer. The pipeline operator (|) passes the
results to the Where-Object cmdlet, which selects the services with a Status property of "Paused". The next pipeline operator sends the results to Resume-Service, which
resumes the paused services.

In practice, you would use the WhatIf parameter to determine the effect of the command before running it without WhatIf.
