    Window standby, won't wake up

    Running WinXp Pro on a HP Workstation

    it goes into standby mode after 40 mins of inactivity, all good...

    but pressing keys, moving the mouse (usb or ps2) the and the usual stuff doesn't wake it up ... in the end I'm holding in the power button.

    Any ideas to throw around ?

    How about the manufacturer of the machine in question?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Did you search their FAQ / forum / web pages / whatever?

    Could you not just turn off stand-by mode?

    Maybe you just have to kiss your computer then it'll wake up.

    I had the same problem with my girlfriends computer, after some searching I found out it was just a setting in the bios that had to be changed.

    Maybe you have already tried this but since you didn't supply us that kind of information I can only guess.

    I agree with GanglyLamb, it's almost certainly a problem of BIOS settings (or you need a new version of BIOS perhaps).

    Alternatively, it may be a problem with a driver that doesn't shut things down in the right way, but it's less likely.
