Humm.. I don't even have a standby button, it only gives me the hibernate option. Sorry I can't help :(

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.
