Standby Mode My standby mode no longer works. PC comes out of standby a few seconds after I put it in. I've done virus scans (on NOD32) and adware scans (on skybot 1.4) and they indicate that there is no problem with a virus. Any suggestions

    I have a Dell 4100 Celeron processor - monitor is black/blank & when I press a button on the monitor, it says to move the mouse or press key on keyboard to resume. I can press keys & move the mouse all day, but nothing. I have powered off the computer, disconnected power, tried a different monitor, cables & video cards, but...still nothing. Any ideas?

Features of NOD32 Antivirus

ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 is the most effective protection you can find to combat today's huge volumes of Internet and email threats. It provides comprehensive antivirus and antispyware protection without affecting your computer's performance. ESET NOD32 Antivirus is also one of the fastest antivirus solutions. Using advanced ThreatSense technology, ESET NOD32 Antivirus proactively protects you from new attacks. ESET NOD32 Antivirus detects and disables both known and unknown viruses, Trojans, worms, adware, spyware, rootkits and other Internet threats. Nod32 offers a number of great features that enable you to monitor the security of your computer with history/report logging and routine notification of the latest viruses.

Like many security solutions, the primary function of ESET Nod32 is to detect and block viruses and other infections, a task it easily succeeds at. This software can be run in two different ways: by a simple scan or by customizing your options and running a scan from the Control Centre. The Control Centre gives you access too many great features and numerous scanning options including NOD32, DMON, IMON and EMON. Here is a rundown on a few of the Nod32 scanning features:

  • NOD32 - this component is the most powerful tool against viruses and other infections. It acts as the resident scanner, functioning in the memory of your operating system at all times.
  • DMON - this scan thoroughly combs through office documents and files directly downloaded from the web.
  • IMON - this scanner can be viewed as your front-line defence because it monitors web traffic using HTTP, FTP, SMTP and various Winsock protocols.
  • EMON - this scanner is responsible for detecting viruses that may have originated from email messages.

While this is a highly advanced program, Nod32 allows you to get up and running with a simple installation.

Keyboard locks on startup, mouse pad works, FN & ECS (for Standby) works

your comp is infected for sure.i`ve seen many cases where my customer`s comp is infected and they face the same problem.
make sure you have ethernet cable plugged in to your laptop so we can use safe mode with networking. shutdown your computer.on top of the keyboard you have F8 key.the moment you`ll press the power button to turn on the computer start tapping F8. advance boot up options will appear. select safe mode with networking
try restoring your comp to a previous time when it was working. if it doesn`t work don`t worry just follow the steps below.In any case you have to clean virus out of your computer.
download,install and run this software.after running the scan clean all the infections and restart your comp.
Good Luck!!

Comuter will not stay in standby mode.

So why do you need the computer in stand-by mode anyway? My computers are either on or off. Off saves power and hardware.

You may have a problem with standby versus hibernation mode. Go into control panel and look for your power options. You need to look for power options for standby etc. Ideally you should not allow your computer to hibernate. Some laptops just wont come out of hibernation mode successfully so preventing it is a good option. Secondly scan your laptop for viruses at the earliest opportunity
