Every time I try and put my computer into StandBy or Hibernate, it'll power down just fine, but then restart on it's own in 3 to 5 seconds. I don't push or move anything. it'll just start up on it's own...Anyone know why?

also, for energy saving, which one is better? Stand By or Hibernation? Thanks...

You might want to try reinstalling your video driver. For some reason, a lot of stand-by problems are linked to the video driver.
