Standby and Hibernation issue

Guest

I have two Windows XP Home Edition computers with all updates installed that
are set to go into standby after being idle for two hours. Neither of the
computers will go into standby after the two hours of being idle, but they
will manually go into standby. I have checked in the device manager to make
sure all my hardware is able to be turned off by Windows to save power
consumption, but still they do not go into standby. Also all drivers are up
to date on both of the computers.

Windows automatically performs certain maintenance tasks to improve
performance and reliability. These tasks require reading and writing
to the hard drive. When these tasks are performed the idle timer is
reset, which affects the amount of time it takes your Tablet PC to go
into standby mode.

Some automated task like that mentioned below may prevent windows from
entering to stand by


Scheduled tasks

Paging operations

The loading of services or drivers

Windows Update checking the system state

Event logging

Network detection, such as DHCP or Autonet

Third-party services, such as quota software or an anti virus program

Turn off your wireless or LAN connection to prevent automated network
tasks from occurring.

Thanks for responding quickly. I read about that issue on a support site.
They gave a link to a fix from Microsoft, but the link was broken.
