I was not telling you to install sp1,I was telling you to read the article,specifically:
If you set the monitor to turn off and the screen saver to start at the same time, the computer may not go into standby and hibernate modes.

My screensaver starts in 12 minutes, the monitor shuts off after 30. The screensavers I use are NON 3D. any other thought?

I updated the video driver for the Intel card that came with the system last week after someone suggested it. Otherwise I check the MS site every couple of days for updates. But nothing major has been done.

"Hung" drivers are almost always the reason for sudden disappearances of the hibernate and standby functions.

If that is the only driver that you are aware of having changed, why not try the rollback feature of XP and see if that returns your hibernation?

The best drivers are usually found on the manufacturer's sites. Updates often address this issue. I'd check for updates to the major ones, like NIC, graphics, and sound.

it was doing it before I updated. Doesn't the rollback feature return the whole sytem to it's previous state right after it's 1st startup?

System restore is a tool that tracks changes to your computer and creates a restore point when it detects the beginning of a change. You can use the System Restore Wizard to select a restore point to restore your computer to an earlier state when your computer was functioning the way you like.

I was referring to the "rollback" of drivers. XP saves the previous version of newly installed drivers. You can roll back to the previous version in the driver's properties in Device Manager.
