I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Right-click an empty area of your desktop
Select New>>Shortcut. This will invoke the Create Shortcut Wizard
In the text box, copy and paste the following code: %windir%\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState
Click Next, then rename your shortcut: Standby
Click Finish.

About half the time "%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState" tries to put my computer into Hibernate, which isn't supported.
