I just switched from a dial-up modem setup, to a high-speed cable
modem setup. I am running Windows XP Home Edition on a HP Pavillion
734n computer. Prior to changing to cable modem, I had no problem
using Windows XP Stand-by mode. It worked fine. Now, when I go into
Stand-by mode, within less than a minute, the system will pop right
back up again to whatever was on the screen prior to going into
I also tried just using the system's Power Management settings instead
of manually invoking Stand-By. The monitor and disk drive power off
after the set number of minutes, and then a couple of minutes later,
they're back on again.
I've even tried closing all Task Bar applications, and deactivated
Zone Alarm and Backweb, to no avail.
Any ideas as to what may be causing this, and how to correct the
Thanks in advance,
