    For the first time in a long while I put my computer in stand-by mode and found that it no longer worked properly. When I moved my mouse to bring my computer back to life I saw a blank screen with a message revolving around all 4 corners of the screen telling me to "check my display settings". To get going again I had to perform an illegal shutdown and reboot. Going to my display settings I did not see anything relating to stand-by mode. This problem started before I installed SP2 so that could not be the cause. If anyone knows how I could get my stand-by mode to work properly again your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Alan

    YOu probably have a LCD screen. Your resolution and refresh rate should be set according to the max / native resolution. What is the size of your monitor.

    If it is a CRT, then your video card is not sending the proper signal to 'wake it up'.
