Hey everyone, on my desktop, whenever i try to go into standby mode.
I get this message (found in picture).
Does anyone know how to fix it?

Go into Device Manager and check to see if it has a Power Management Tab under the Device Properties for the NIC
Check the bios settings under power management. Wake on LAN may be active and any net traffic would keep you from going to standby.
THis sometimes happens with my laptop & my intel wirless NIC. It keeps it from going into standby, just fix the issue - its usually wake-on-LAN causing it in my experience..

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
