    Hi, I have tried many many things to get my computer NOT to shutdown when I try to wake the machine up from standby.

    In the bios the PWR button <4sec is set to suspend and ACPI suspend mode is set to S1 & S3. I enabled the keyboard to wake up the machine (changed jumper settings). In Control panel>power options>advance I have set it the powerbutton to standby too. I have also set the mouse to wake up from standby.

    BUT still when I use the keyboard, mouse or push the button on the tower the machine switches off!

    Any help would be much appreciated!
