Hi guys,

I have a little problem that I can't figure out... My computer goes in standby after a certain period of time and when i move the mouse, the start page comes up where i put my password...I haven't actually set anything to go into standby not even a screensaver which is why this is so frustrating! I'm using windows XP service pack 2, any help would be much appreciated... Thanks!:confused:

I'd already checked that, there was no tick in the box which is why I don't understand why the computer goes into standby when all the settings say that it shouldn't.

Try checking this:
Start> Run> type powercfg.cpl then hit OK.
On Power Schemes tab, try setting
Turn off monitor:
Turn off hard disks:
System standby:
all to Never.
Apply and OK.

Lets try this

First backup your registry
Start >> run >> regedit /e c:\registrybackup.reg

1.click start | run | regedit
2. Goto this key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
3. In right pane, look for the key: "NoAutoReturnToWelcome" and set it to 1.

If you are sure that it is standby that your system is going into, you could try this
regedit from kellys-korner.
Go to line # 137 on the right:
Disable Stand-by: and select Per System.
