before complicating the stuff, do the following:

right click on my computer >> click properies >> go to hardware tab >> click on device manager >> a window will pop-up >> expand the computers branch >> tell us the items there ( it could be ACPI or Standard computer )

Standby & hibernate are features designed for laptops, not desktops. Keep it disabled & adjust your screen saver / power scheme settings instead.

why not desinged for desktops...???

For desktops standby & hibernagte does nothing. For laptops they conserve battery life. Just wait until your desktop begins to develop problems listed HERE.

well...just highlight the stand-by button and you`ll see that it puts the computer in low-power state and reduces consumation of power

Experience has shown us that some desktop motherboard manufacturers have not put a lot of effort into making sure that standby and hibernate work properly with their products.

I think you are a little short on experience darko010101. If you had more, you would have found that there are many motherboards that have problems with standby and hibernate.
