stand by and hibernate restart instead

  crabdens 17:27 06 Mar 2008

When I try to use either hibernate or standby the computer just does a normal restart.
Iam running Xp with sp2 and all updates installed,I have not installed any programmes since it started and a system restore did not help.I tried to do a rpair with the XP disc but despite my not using one it wanted a password to continue.
Has anyone got any suggestions?

This can happen for a number of reasons. Power settings should be your first port of call, and post back with details of your system and motherboard specs.

you may need to adjust a setting in the bios if you have the manual it may help its normally in power management

this is my second attempt to reply to your responses,the first one seemed to vanish.
first I do not know how to find power settings.
specs as far as I can find
ASRock conroe-133-d667r2 Motherboard
2GB DDR2 memory
if this is not what you want can you tell me how to access what you do want
