Despite entering settings correctly in the power schemes area of power options my pc no longer goes into standby at the entered time. I di read once that there was a simple fix or edit that could be made to the registry that would restore the automatic system standby. I am using Windows ME:confused:

Hello PaulD,

Welcome tohttp://www.pcguide.com/ubb/pcgubb.gif Forums!

You might be correct that there is some sort of patch. I had nothing but problems with any of the powersave standby features. If you are ever downloading something and it goes into standby...you're cooked! :eek:

When you reboot after the lockup...you cannot get your modem to work without removing it physically...it still thinks it is initialized and that the "space" is occupied...

I would suggest for the time being that you enter Powersave features and set everything to NEVER...put on a nice screen saver! Mine is the scrolling text...that reads I love my Sweetie! ;)

If you find the patch, please post it! :)
