XP going into stand by problems

  1. I've been having problems with my system going into sleep mode When it's on user log in screen. I put it in sleep mode by pressing a keyboard hotkey what it does it locks up my keyboard and mouse. It use to work 3 days ago only think different was I applied the SP1 hotfix updates from microsoft website, I think I answered my own question but, does anyone know why it causes this?
    Never had a problem with XP till now, also, to get out of this situation I had to hardboot the PC.
    I know there had been some posts regarding this, hate to bring up a dead subject, but, you know how it is!

    Standby and Hibernation can cause problems, use resources unnecessarily, and are generally not great for your system. You'd be better off just setting your HD and display to power down after a set period of inactivity.
  3. Interesting, glad to know that. I will try and do that modification instead.

  4. Also;
    Does anyone know how to set turn off monitor on the user screen after a certain amount of time?
