Hi,

I have windows XP home edition with SP2. My problem is that when I go
start->shutdown the standby button is translucent and I am not able to select
it. Standby used to work, but I had to recently reinstall windows due to
some major issues with my computer. Can anyone help me?

Right click the desktop, click Properties > Screen Saver tab > Power button and
check the Power Management settings.

Install the Video Adapter's drivers from the manufacturer's web site.
