  1. ok iv noticed this problem a few weeks ago since i installed my new printer...if the problem existed before this i dont no.

    anyway problem is when i click on the option for standby computer does nothing

    about two weeks ago when i click turn off, the computer went onto stand by and if i pressed the power button again then it turned on and off again properly. But this turn off problem is now fixed some how and doesnt do that ever since i killed the process running for the HP printer software a few times.

    but today i tried to use stand by again and it did not work. i found that when i killed the printer process again and the computer went on to hybernate after a couple of minutes.

    i decided to run the AVG virus scanner just for the sake of it and this are the results. No results found but;

    it seems like some settings have been changed. What are these? could they be affecting the stand by problem?

    iv attached a photo below of the results.

    When going to Advanced Power Options in Control Panel.
    What is listed in there?

    Please change them to "ask me what to do"

    And then test if the error still happens

    Also, do you have something like Spybot that changes your host file for you? It could be your security programs that made these changes
