Standby does fail. Here's just one example -> http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=296773
In a desktop, such fails with regularity since drivers can ignore standby/hibernate to meet shipping deadlines.
For a desktop, we just tell the display to power down for a good power savings.
Hi I am using the operating system WinME 2276 IBM. I am finding that when I put my computer on Standby it will not start back up when clicking on a key at times. Most of the time it will shut down when instructed to shut down, but on occassion it will not shut down either. Any suggestions. Thank you.
