My PC (XP) won't stay in standby mode for longer than 10 seconds. :thumbsup:

Does this sound like a typical hardware issue? (or is it a software issue--if so, wrong section...oops!)

Thanks.

Not sure from the information provided - but the "usual" fix for standby/hibernation problems is updating your video drivers to the latest, WHQL certified version. Try that and let us know if it works.

Sorry, I get a bit carried away with the acronyms (spent 25 years in the Army)!

WHQL is Windows Hardware Quality Labs and they certify drivers for Windows. Not all drivers are WHQL certified - but if they're available, definitely use them! If you can't find them, then most of the drivers from the major manufacturers are fine. Just stay away from custom drivers while troubleshooting - they add extra complexity to a problem that is already too complex.
