Strangely enough, a lot of these standby issues are caused by problems with the video driver. I would try re-installing your video driver.

Thanks for the info I will give it a try. My Driver is NVDIA Geforce 6100. So that means it would be series 6 correct?

I solved my problem. I didin't need to install a new driver. I just did a registry booster scan and it seemed to fix my problem. Thanks for the help.

Looks like I jumped to conclusion way to fast. My computer is still freezing when I shut it down. The standby problem is fixed now though. Please help with the freezing problem. Thanks.

Have a look in the Event Viewer for any errors at the time of the freezes.

To open the Event Viewer go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer. Alternately, go to Start > Run and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Check in all three categories (Application, Security, and System).

If you find an error that occurred at the time right-click on it and select properties. Copy the information in the window and post it back here. This will help us diagnose your problem.
