Question about Dell Latitude C840 Notebook
Since installing XP, I can't get the laptop to go to stand-by when I close the lid.
Windows does not give me that option when I access the advanced settings in Power Option Properties.
Is this a hardware issue?
Yes this sounds like a hardware problem the switch is not telling your laptop that the lid is closed you might want to take this to a computer tech and have them change it
