I have a Toshiba Portege M300 with XP Professional. In the past few weeks it has stopped automactically going to standby and hibernate after a period of no use. It just stays on till the battery is about 6% and then hibernates. It used to standby without a problem

I have run ani-spyware and the anti-virus is up to date
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Toshiba power management program
The only process running when idling is tktmon.exe

Is is possible to uninstall and re-install the Windows power manager?

Has anyone else had this problem - and then found a cure?

If you go to:

Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Power Options

What do see listed under 'Power Schemes'?

What settings are next to: Turn off monitor, Turn off hard disks, and System Standby?

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!
