My ThinkPad X301 with a v recent clean install of XP Pro SP3 will not enter the standby state. I have run SFC twice and reinstalled the current version of the BIOS. I use Zone Alarm but have used ZA fr years without this problem. My remaining software consists of standard applications, nothing unusual. Any thoughts as to where I might look for causes would be much appreciated.

Thank you in adavnce,
