Automation Workshop includes the Wait for Service Action that pauses an automated workflow until a service (or Filesystem/Kernel driver) has reached the specified status.
Wait for Service can delay a workflow until a Windows service has transitioned to the installed, not installed, is running, is not running, is paused, is not paused, is stopped, is not stopped, or is disabled status.
