|i´m on desktop|
It's a common knowledge among PC manufacturers and technicians that standby and hibernation:
1) wasn't meant for desktops other than laptops.
2) are problem-prone especially with desktops
The only advantage of using standby/hibernation is to conserve laptop battery consumption. Desktops doesn't use battery (I don't mean CMOS), do they?
M$ should have segregated Xp in two different OS - one for desktop without the power options and the other laptops with it.
I guess this is my rant for today :-)
