Friend's Sony Vaio VGN-FE11H running XP Media Center Edition SP3 has suddenly stopped going into Hibernate or Standby mode.

 It shuts down normally, obviously checked power settings, but it stays awake until you manually shut it down.

Any ideas please?

Hi there,

I agree with xtreminator it is going to be an ACPI problem. It maybe that the OS is not communicating with the BIOs correctly after Sp3 install..

I would check the VAIO website to see if there is an available BIOS update that may combat this problem.

Ok thanks all, but it turned out she had installed a second anti-virus program by mistake - I got rid of that and now it works fine again.
