I recently encountered an issue with my Windows XP Home machine crashing while it was in system standby mode. When the machine awoke, it came only to a black screen with a cursor. I let it sit about 10 minutes. I hit ctrl-alt-del, and there was a program showing for One-Note (which should not have been runinng (though t might have been just a process in the system tray)). I ended that task, let it sit for another 10, and nothing had happened on the screen (the task manager was still on). I then did a restart from there. I got two seperate "can't stop application" messages. The first referenced PNL_List, the second Explorer.
When the machine restarted, it came directly to a BSOD, which showed the PNL_LIST_CORRUPT error.
I can't seem to find word one about what this is from MS, or from the internet community in general. I'm hoping I'm not the only one who has ever seen this!
Thank you in advance for any help.
