Ok.....wtf

SO standby is all fucked up on my laptop(XP). When I boot it up, before I log in I cant select standby, but as soon and I log in it gets greyed out.....WTF????? I have done a repair install of windows to no avail. I'm stuck, anyone?

-Daniel

edit: if i put the mouse in the box to type my password and wait for the HD action....I cant select it now....

doing a "repair" install of windows usually does not fix "major" problems with the operating system, you'll usually need to do a "god i have to wipe my hard drive!?" install maybe...

I hate everyone, so you don't have to.
