you know what...

I had installed XP on another machine... had standby on it
even had it on standby when i took a break for the night.

Woke up... installed the rest of the software and when it came to the end of the night... went to standby and it was greyed out!

I have no idea why and what did it

I think it depends on your power saving settings in control panel.
Though why they've arbitrarily changed .....

It´s possible you´ve installed a hardware driver that doesn´t support it.

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
