Question about Dell Dimension 4700C PC Desktop

2 Answers

Standby Mode My standby mode no longer works. The PC goes into standby for a few seconds but then kicks back on. I've searched for a virus (on NOD32 and Skybot 1.4)but they indicate it is not a virus problem. Standby had worked fine for a year, but just recently stoped. Any suggestions?

    I confirmed standby is enabled and I confirmed there is no screen saver on. So essentially the problem is unsolved. Note that the PC kicks out of standby whether I do it manually or whether it is placed on standby according to the elapsed time schedule.

Go to control panel then power options>power schemes and see if system standby is enabled, it may have changed if done some major updates. also turn off screen saver if on as this may bring it out of standby
