XP wont Standby properly

  Danny D 20:32 18 Jan 2005

I have XP Home running. When not being used the system goes into 'Standby' mode. But instead of properly going into the mode it hangs with a blue background screen and the message 'Preparing to Standby. This will hang like this until I power down manually.

Anybody got any clues as to why its doing this?
