    Not a solution, but I wouldn't use these features, they have never worked properly. Just set the Monitor and Hard Drives to turn off after a certain time.

    Standby and Hibernate both work flawlessly on my old desktop and my Dell notebook. [​IMG]
    You just have to use hardware and drivers that support it (hence the WHQL).
     
  5. maybe they didn't install good when you were installing windows, reinstalling windows and select repair instead of install, so like that it would just replace all the files and leave eveyrthing else in tact, coz if you install it again it'll install a new registy and you're gonna have to install everything else again

    in order to make standby and hibernate to work you need three things
    1) correct graphics drivers
    2) correct sound drivers
    3) enough disk space to store the ram context if you are hibernating

    You could post your hardware specs, and we might be able to point you in the right direction.
