everytime i reboot my notebook into standby mode, it'll automatically start up again in 20 minutes or so and then instantaneously it reboots back into hibernating mode, all on its own.
i contacted HP customer service, and i also did what they told me to---downloading update BIO and reinstall Power Management. neither of them serves favorably.
any idea , guys?

Standby mode/hibernating mode is notoriously flakey. I personally would disable it and not use it as there have been many problems with its use and no adequate answers/fixes.

It could be a driver compatability issue with SP2. I would see if there are any newer drivers available for your video card, sound card, motherboard, or network card and install them.
