I am getting a "System Standby Failed" error message when I try to put system
in standby mode.
The full length message is: The service 'Microsoft .NET
Framework v1.0.3705 Update' is preventing the machine from entering standby.
Try stopping this service and try again.

Any suggestions? I tried to find anything helpful on the web and the
Microsoft site but without any success. Help?!

Is upgrading an option?  1.0 is a seriously buggy version of the .NET framework!!

If I upgrade, will this annoying message go away??  What's the cost to upgrade?

Nothing, if you get the Visual Studio.NET 2005 Express Edition:

Keep in mind that 2005 is significantly different than the 2002 version (1.0).  You always have to factor in the cost of upgrading, and learning new things.  I would definitely suggest this though.  I call 2002 the Yugo of the .NET world, 2003 the Ford Taurus, and 2005 is the Lexus.  

There is a different 2005, depending on whether you want VB.NET, C#, or Visual Web Developer.

BTW, I can't promise you that the annoying message will go away right away, because I don't know what the exact context for it is.  But, I feel confident that a way can be found.

Thanks for the quick responses. BTW, I recently installed SQL Express 2005, and I believe that's when my problems started.  I noticed this was one of the options on the vstudio site. Is there a SP or upgrade for it? Do you think it would help?

Did you install the SQL Server Express 2005 advanced edition SP2 or the standard edition?

Without completely understanding your problem, it is difficult to say whether anything would be a panacea.

Sorry, what am I missing?  How does installing this SQL server help to solve the problem?  I tried that and the situation is still the same.  I tried downloading the dotnetfx.exe redistribution package and re-installing but that has not worked.  Right now I'm uninstalling .net 3, 2, then 1 hoping to be able to reinstall all of them but I think I alrady tried that once!

My problem I think started when I uninstalled Norton Antivirus.  Is there any known reason that particular uninstall would mess up .net?  I even did a system restore... and uninstalled Norton... and ended up with the same problem again.

Why do I want to uninstall Norton?  I think it is a rather bloated piece of software and I'm becoming disenchanted by it.  But the real reason is that my d-link DSM-520 meda player / media server is blocked by Norton's firewall and I can't seem to get past it.  Uninstalling, I can stream to my DSM-520... but I cannot put my computer to sleep anymore because of the .NET problem!

By the way, I have a HP Digital Entertainment Center Z556 running Wnidows Media Center Edition.

Hope you can hep more? Thanks,

Update: I uninstalled all my .net framework.  I found a tool to help do a clean uninstallation here: http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2004/09/08/227118.aspx 

I was able to reinstall the .net framework 1 from dotnetfx.exe but the problem persists.
