:thumbsup: I am having difficulty setting power options. If I enter and then save my settings, I get a popup saying 'revisions don't match'. No explanation, no help in getting them to match. Are there default settings, or can someone give me an example of some working settings. I'd like the monitor to go off, machine go to standby, then hibernate. But when to have discs spin down? I hope this is clear, and I'm sure it's a stupid question, but what can you do? Thanks. excentric

Hi excentric and Welcome to Bleeping Computer,

Possibly because Standby and Hibernate are more or less the same thing.
This option quickly saves your work and puts your computer in a virtual sleep.....a delicate mode between on and off.

If you want to, Turn Off the computer when you are done for the day.
You will have to power off the monitor manually.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

:thumbsup: Thanks, TMack and Mark. It's not the standby and hibernate, it's when you go into Control Panel, then Performance and Maintenance, then Power Options, then Power Schemes. It's a laptop. Just got broadband and my pc is too old for it to work, says the installer. So I'm using the laptop til I can upgrade. excentric
