Try updating your motherboard's BIOS. That could solve some power down/standby problems.

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.

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?
