Returning from standby problems

By ferrari24

  1. I am having a problem with my computer and returning form standby. By this I mean my computer will go through the usual cycle to go into standby, but when I press the power button to return my computer boots up, like it had actually shut down.

    I am currently using Windows XP Pro x64, and my computer specs are with my profile. This also happens on my x86 version of XP Pro.

    This didn't happen before, but I don't know what I could have done to screw it up. If it's a driver I sure don't know which one.

    go to the Standby settings, alter it to Hibernate, put it back to Standby, and
    then save/apply the result.

    I've found that sometimes the setting gets lost and needs to be reset
