I recently reinstalled the Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 3 on my Dell Vostro 1000.
Formerly, when shutting down, I was offered the choices of Hibernate, Standby, Turn off, Restart or Cancel. Now, the Hibernate option is not shown and the Standby option is grayed out (and unavailable).
I have done some research and it seems that this has something to do with my ACPI Multiprocessor PC (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) which I located in my device manager.
I have looked at the Dell Drivers and downloads website, but I cannot find a driver for this device.
Also, I posted a query in the Dell Community forum but without response.
My machine is 2 years old. Does anyone know if there is a more recent driver available?
