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.

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
