    Try updating your motherboard's BIOS. That could solve some power down/standby problems.

    yeah...

    set BIOS/CMOS up properly and if u know anything about the jumpers in there some MB's need a jumper closed for the computer to go on to standby

    XP Standby.

    I had this problem, and discovered that if I unchecked "enable hibernation" in Power Options then Standby was enabled. Hope it helps.

    Also keep in mind some computers just will not go into standby mode or come out of standby..regardless...Of bios setup.
