Computer won't stay in standby mode

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by John H. Power, Feb 20, 2004.

  1. I have been fooling around with these things for many years and they
    never cease to puzzle and frustrate. All of a sudden, when I put my
    Compaq in standby mode, a few minutes later is automatically boots
    back up. It was working fine for over a year. I have not added any
    programs, changes any settings. Nothing.

    Anybody have any ideas on this. Can these never ending XP "fixes"
    cause these things to happen?

    XP fixes didn't do this.
    In my experience Compaq has never gotten standby to work as advertised.
    My advise is disable all that crap.
