I recently re-formatted my comp, and now I cannot hibernate nor standby. When I click shut down, the standby is watermarked (faded out). Can anybody help?

Thanks!

It could be an ACPI issue. Take a look here:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q216573/

update your dispay adapter's drivers to the latest ones. You might get one from the manufacturer of the computer or laptop. Shd be on their website.

Click on "start", then control panel, then "power options" - then click on "hibernate" and make sure it is enabled.
