Have you enabled Standby in Power Options?

  chrisjohn 19:07 14 Oct 2006

their is no option for standby in power options.

I assume that under Power Schemes you have it set as Home/Office Desk?

Under that you should have options for Turn off Monitor; Turn Off hard disks; System Standby and System Hibernation

no it only says turn off monitor,and hard disks.

Has it ever worked or has it only recently 'disappeared'?

If it has worked until recently try System Restore.

If not try a repair of XP:

Sometimes the system files (those required to run Windows properly) can become corrupted. Here's how to run a check on your system files:

• Click Start; Run.
• In the Run box, type cmd.exe to open the command prompt window.
• At the prompt, type sfc.exe /scannow
• Press ENTER. If Windows finds problems with the system files, you will be prompted to insert your Windows XP installation CD to restore the files.

If no problems are found and the scan finishes, type exit and press ENTER.
