I am concentrating on Vista in order to better understand and utilise all the things that are supposed to be improvements!! I notice however that there is no standby option in the start/shut down menu. Why is this ?. Is it a hidden option that needs activating in some way I would often put my computer into standby in XP if I wanted to do something else for a few mins and then come back to it. I dont see this option in Vista Any thoughts folks?
Yes it is called sleep. By default in Vista when you go to the Start button and then press the red Power Button Icon it goes into sleep mode. You can change what happens when you click this. I`ve changed it to shut down the computer which is more logical for me. You`ll also find the sleep button using the arrow at the end of the Start bar.
When I click the start button to get the menu there is a red button and a "lock" symbol on the button next to that and an arrow after that When I click that arrow I see a menu with Hibernate etc ....but the sleep option is "greyed " out So I can activate all the other functions on that menu BUT not the sleep option Phew ...hope I've described that adequately?? So my dilemna is still How to put the computer into standby in Vista Any more thoughts will bevery much appreciated
