IISRESET - doesn't do what it says on the tin

Flame me for being naiive but I have my 'World Wide Web Publishing' service set to Manual restart.  Why hog resources on my laptop if I don't need it? 

When I'm developing web apps I start it.  When I use 'iisreset' though it doesn't actually restart this service.  Odd behaviour that, you think it would reset the service status to that prior to the iisreset being issued.

Google iisreset and in the KB article here's the Microsoft comment on 'iisreset'

 The default behavior if no options are specified is to stop and restart the Web services on the local computer.

So just for the record, it doesn't.  Using 'iisreset /restart' doesn't help either.  Serves me right for being frugal with my laptop resources.
