I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. 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.

Standby?  Are you talking about recovering from Sleep mode?  I have disabled Sleep and Hibernate on all of my XP and Win 7 computers because they did not recover to operating mode correctly.  I had to power them off and reboot at least once for them to recover to 'normal' operating mode.  I know that there are some computers that do that correctly but my HP computers in particular don't.

@shaunwingin  - Is the machine an HP machine, or ??

I use Lenovo machines and my (long ago retired) ThinkPad T41 XP Pro machine suspended just fine. I always updated the PM Driver (device manager) and the Power Management application (Lenovo).
