I recently had a need to re-install windows xp-home sp1 back on to my pc. Now however I can not get the thing to go into standby mode, when I click start & turn off computer, this option is greyed out. Similarly, the monitor used to go into standby if the pc was left for 20 mins, that does not happen either even though it is showing as set in Control Panel > Display > Screensaver. Would be grateful for any help.

Go into control panel - power options and check all settings there..

Settings show :

Turn off monitor after : 20 minutes
Turn off hard disks : Never

Anyone got any more ideas how I can restore the standby mode. Would be ever so grateful.
