SQL Server simple recovery model and Transaction log

Checkpoint is the word:

Even in Simple recovery mode SQL still needs to write all logged operations to the SQL transaction log as SQL is build using write ahead logging.

Backing up the database does nothing for the transaction log in any of the recovery modes.

The actual process that allows log file truncation and wrap around to complete in simple mode is a checkpoint.
