    Unhappy Windows XP: disabled standby

    I recently formated my laptop's hard-disk and reinstalled Windows XP Pro (to get rid of all my old garbage). Now unfortunatly when I click on the start menu and navigate to the "Turn Off Computer" button, the window that appears which should contain the Stand By, Turn Off and Restart buttons, contains all 3 buttons but the "Stand By" buttons is disabled

    I feel stupid having to ask you guys how the fix this problem but I have tried all of the things I can think of to fix this problem and have failed.

    Any help that you can provide in solving this problem will be greatly recieved

    Yours Faithfully,

    Unfortunately you don't say what, so please forgive me if you have already"been there"

    Usually those commands are controlled in the power management sections of your BIOS or in the control panel.

    You might like to check your current settings.
