Good morning everybody,


I have an IBM T43 running Windows XP.  I have always used just an administrator account.  I've read that it would be safer to run my computer on a limited account, so I created one.  When going back to the administrator account, I tried to put the computer in standby.  This is when the message about the Microsoft ACPI compliant system driver needs updating popped up.  Needless to say, the computer wouldn't go into standby.


I deleted my limited account, rebooted, and now the comuter goes into standby as it used to.  Hmm, anybody know how I might open a limited account, and be able to go into standby?  Thanks.

It may just boil down to permissions. Check this out, though it requires some registry editing. If you're doubtful of anything or have any hesitation, don't do it.


However at the moment, it's all that I can find, will post if a simpler option is found.




EDIT: Here's another, that may be more self-explanatory.

Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
