Power Management Tabs missing!

  meniscus 11:27 29 Nov 2005

Ive been trying to configure standby on my shuttle Pc on which ive just wiped the drive and installed XP pro. (specs below) Ive configured it to use s3 standby mode in the power management section in the bios. Ive gathered from websites that you leave all the rest of the power management settings(in bios) disabled to avoid software conflicts! Can anyone please confirm this is right?
Ive installed all the drivers correctly i think but when i go into device manager and into properties for both the mouse and the keyboard, the power management tabs(that are present on my dell system) are missing! Why is this?

I installed drivers from shuttles website for sb61g2 V4 but im not sure what model it is as i received the pc with no manuals or anythin-there seemed to be no problems with the installation! When i installed the driver for the Nvidia Geforce 5500 i got a warning that it didnt have microsofts signature. Could that be somethin to da with the missing power management tabs?

Are you logging into the PC using an Administrator account or are you using a limited account?
