This may be because your task bar is set to 'auto hide' so you will have to disable it.

your best option is to remove the powercord from the back of the computer and wait a minute before plugging it back in and turning on your system this will delete the "standby mode save" and turn on your PC normally

Emerson LC195emx 19 in. TV/PC Problem. Works fine as DTV. In PC (RGB) mode it works fine when power ON before PC boot. After PC enters STANDBY, screen reverts to standby. When PC comes out of standby,...

I've had the same issue with a samsung. It had something to do with the PC not being able to detect the hardware when it came out of standby, and sending the wrong screen resolution to the TV. I ended up finally turning off standby on the PC (control panel-->power options) and just setting a screen saver.
Sometimes when the pc came back up, I could switch the source on the TV (to maybe an HDMI) then switch it back to the PC connector and it would find it. But, on mine it was inconsistent.

After installing Windows 7 on a Thinkpad R40 I lost standby mode. Standby mode was working correctly under Windows XP but doesn't seem to be available under Windows 7. What can I do to get Standby back?

You will need to download the motherboard drivers for you computer from the IBM website. you can get them from here...

It appears that there is not any drivers available for Windows 7...or even Vista for your computer so they might not work.

Task bar is missing on bottom of screen after pc wakes up.

mine does this with windows 7, right click on desktop and open 'personalize' then open 'taskbar and start menu'
From here choose to move your taskbar location to the side of the screen and click apply. it should return, then just tell it to go back to the bottom.

ThinkPad T60 Desktop Not Restored After Hibernation/Standby

there is something that runs most of the interface between the user and the computer it is called explorer.exe to get the task manager open, you can try pressing CTRL+Shift+Delete another alternative is to do an OS reinstallation.

To get explorer.exe

1) press Ctrl+Alt+Delete; in unsuccessful try Ctrl+****+Delete
2) if task manager opens click on 'New Task..." (if task manager does not open, consider reinstalling your OS or simply don't go into standby/hibernate)
3) Once you get the New Task dialog box, type explorer.exe or C:/Windows/explorer.exe
