I've just tried it on mine and nothing happens. I tried changing the various options in Control Panel, Power Options but nothing seems to work. Maybe it's a setting in the BIOS that does it?

try clicking start/run and type sfc /scannow and insert your xp cdrom disc when/if prompted(if yours came pre installed you wont be asked for this)this will find and replace any damaged or missing system files.

also try windows update click here

Try this, control panel - performance & maintainence - power options - advanced.

standby is missing from the shutdown menu,not "when i press the power button" thats the way im reading it anyway.

Ben.s you can run sfc from the command prompt if you want.

start/run type cmd click ok

type sfc /scannow (note the space after sfc and before /)

did you try the microsoft help above and are you all up to date with windows updates?
