I had a similar problem it sounds like your power module is corrupt, the only thing I can recommend is that you either do a system file check, just go to start -> Run -> cmd and type in sfc scannow in the dosprompt and see if that fixes it, if not you might have to run system restore cd or just reinstall alltogether.

Good luck.

Standby option is disabled (greyed out). I am using windows xp.

you may need to activate hibernate in your power options.
