Windows XP Home freezes at standby



In Power Options, I have the settings:

Turn off monitor: after 20 min
Turn of hard disks: after 15 minutes
System standby: after 30 minutes
System hibernates: after 1 hour.

When I return to the computer after several hours, more than half the time
the monitor lights up on keyboard stroke to a Windows screen that says
"preparing for standby" The computer is frozen. No further reponse from
keyboard, does not respond to CTRL-ALT-DEL. Must reboot by holding power key
in for 5 seconds. After rebooting, no error message in EventViewer.

What should I do to prevent this? Will just selecting "Never" for system
standby work?
