    when I try to go into standby mode the screen turns off but thats it. I cannot get the system to come back on unless if I hold down the power button to turn it off then back on.

    I tried changing the option to "do nothing" when I close the lid on the laptop, then change it back to go into standby mode but no luck

    it does it regardless of if I just close the lid, or click start-turn off computer-standby
