I don't know what I installed but I tried removing all the recent installs. However the Stand By button and hybernation option is no more available for me.

I have a Dell 8200 PIV 1.8 ghz with Windows XP Professional.

Any views or help is really really appreciated all.

Thanks a million for your inputs.

You have to enable APM for standby to work. Open the Power Options control panel. Find the option to enable APM and check it. If there is no option, your computer's motherboard does not support standby or hibernation modes.

That option does not exist any more. It used to work a few days back on the same system!

then make sure in your bios that you have your power management set to enabled, if there is no option for that in your bios, and not one in your power control panel, then I dunno!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
