Standby Problem

Guest

I have Windows XP with an Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe Motherboard, AMD XP2200
processor. Several months ago, I had a ps2 mouse with a short in it.
Previous to this, standby and hibernate worked fine. Once I realized the
mouse was bad, I replaced it. However, I can now hibernate without a
problem. I can enter standby in S1 state, but not S3. If I try to use S3,
then when I resume, all the fans come on, lights flash on the computer box,
but there is no monitor activity at all. The only way I can get out of the
problem is to totally shut down my system and restart. I tried system
restore to resolve the problem. I updated all my drivers and bios to try to
resolve the problem. No go.

I totally wiped my hard drive this week, reinstalled xp. And still have the
problem. I tend to think the problem has to be with the motherboard.

Has anyone else had a problem where the ps2 mouse has knocked out the
standby (S3) function?

I don't understand what's meant by S1 and S3 but I have XP Home running on
an old laptop and have noticed that I can happily hibernate and resume many
times between restarts but if I put the laptop into standby after it's been
into hibernate mode then upon resume it also fails to display anything on
screen even though I can tell that the laptop is back up and running
(cooling fan and status lights active). After that it's a case of shutdown
with the power button...
