    Keep having a problem if PC left on for a length of time. 'Preparing to
    stand by...." shows on the screen and the only way out is to reboot. Any
    reason why ?

    If no help there, disable it for now.

    Start, Settings, Control Panel; Power Management.
    Power Scheme: Always On
    System Standby: Never
    Turn Off Monitor: Never
    Turn Off hard drives: Never
    "Apply", "OK"

    Look for a setting in the BIOS too. Disable it.
