    Is this a name-brand laptop or desktop? I know with some laptops you need to install some ACPI Common Modules or drivers in order for any Power Management (ie Standby) to function correctly. Maybe also some incompatability with SP2??? MS is offering free support for issues related to SP2 @ 1-888-SP2-HELP
