Hi all, I use WinXP and I just noticed that when I return from Standby, XP no longer sees that I have a CD-Rom drive. It works fine before I go into it; it's just when I return no drive is listed in Explorer or in Devices. I am just guessing that when XP shuts off the power to my harddisks, it turns off power to the CD-ROM drive, and 'forgets' to turn it back on. I just got a new power supply to combat the crackling from the last one and this could be related to the new one. I do not feel like buying another power supply if this one works fine and going into Standby isn't crucial for me, I tend to just leave my computer on overnight and turn off the monitor without turning off my disks. If there is reason to turn off my disks, then I would, but if not, then I'll stay away from Standby. Does anyone have any suggestions...either with Standby and my CD-Rom drive or whether it is necessary to turn off my disks regularly? ( I use a HP 9300+ and a ECS K7S5A mobo with a AMD 1700+) Thanks a bunch.
