Standby mode when restoring a database lest you apply trans log backups to the databases and leaves the database in a read only mode. Useful in logshipping when you want to read the database you are logshipping to say for reporting. Use the with recovery option when restoring a database when all trans logs have been applied and you want the database out of readonly mode.

The stand by mode put your database in a read-only mode, storing all the uncommited transactions in your stand by file... if you want to make it active, you can take your last log backup and restore it using WITH RECOVERY

This is commonly used in log shipping
