Hi, i am starting to lose my mind... My laptop always used to go into standby mode whenever i closed the lid or left it un-attended for a while. Now it does not.. I can not even do it manually from the start menu. When i select start>turn off computer, it only gives me the option to turn off or restart. The standby button is faint and won't allow me to pick it. In my power option on the control panel i no longer have any standby options.. I have no idea what has happened. I have been googleing the problem and posting it on various sites for a couple of weeks now to no avail. No-one seems to be able to help me. Hope someone here has some ideas. Many thanks. Charlie.
