Standby mode disappeared

  anglefish 22:09 13 Mar 2008

My PC (XP) is set to power down its monitor and hard drive after 20 minutes of inactivity, however it does not?!? also if I try to go to Start/Standby Mode - its not an option - only Turn Off or Restart. Anyone any idea where has it gone and how do I get it to work again?

Also, on another note - my laptop - everytime I turn on the computer, or open up a microsoft program ie word, excel etc it firstly opens up Windows Installer Pop up which tries to look for another program - which asks for a disc. Not sure why, as when I cancel this the program opens OK. How can I stop Windows installer popping up?
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Try puting in the disc it wants to see maybe it's trying to repair.
