Since reformatting my hard disk and reloading Win 98 from scratch I am unable to exit into stand by mode. If Stand by is selected the computer goes into Stand by for about 10 seconds and then wakes up automatically with the following message.
Your computer can not go to stand by because a device driver or program will not allow it. Close all programs and try again.
This I did using CTRL-ALT-DEL for each open program and the problem remained even when all except explorer were shut down. (Explorer is used to shut the machine down). I have removed everything in my Startup Group, removed all screen savers and still the problem persists. The computer goes into Standby if left for the preset time.
Is this a conflict between Win98 and the Bios Power saving.
