    The problem was fixed by restoring the laptop to factory settings and doing the updates one by one. The sleep or standby mode worked! The Sony global support center was of little help ,to think that I was on the phone talking to an agent for about an hour! Thanks for trying to help, I appreciate it.

    I do not recommend putting computers on standby since they rarely work when you "wake them up" though i do understand that sometimes it is necessary. But i do need to know what you mean. 


    Are you asking what button to push to make your computer sleep? 
    Or do you want to set it so when you don't use the computer for x amout of time it goes to sleep on its own?

Vgn-fw330j/b wont stay in sleep mode. it awakens by itself.


I know when you have it in hibernation it will come out if simething startsto run in he background. This could be malicious software or just something you have running that activates and brings it out of hibernation. How many things load up when you first start up the computer, you should eliminate all the programs that start when you boot up, you only need to run programms when you want them, see if this solves your problem

XP Drivers for Sony Vaio VGN-fw230j/b


It's probably not supported Sony.

You can try and downgrade but you might lose some functionality. I downgraded my Vista Gateway laptop to XP but had to spend a lot of time tracking down drivers that would work correctly.

You won't be able to just pop in an XP cd and install. You'll have to jump through a few hoops.

Here's the biggest hoop and guide here:

http://maxeasyguide.blogspot.com/2008/04/preparations-for-winxp-installation-cd.html

Since you have a newer laptop your hard drive uses sata drivers which the XP cd doesn't have built-in.

Let me know if you get stuck or have anymore questions.
