I would suggest collecting startup type for Windows service component monitors.
That status could then be used in multiple ways in an alert trigger condition. It could be used to prevent alerts when a service is down intentionally (say for maintenance). Yes, I know we can mute alerts in Orion, but not all of our technicians login to SW, and even those that do forget to mute alerts. But they always disable the service (to prevent SW from starting the service).
