    I'm not sure where to post this problem. My Inspiron Mini 10 with XP has a hard drive password, and it asks me for it when I turn the computer on. However, when I put it on standby, either by turning the computer off in standby mode, or by closing the lid, or by pressing the on/off switch, and then restart it, either by opening the lid or pressing the on-off button, the computer does not prompt me for the hard drive password, which it should.

    What can I do to fix this? Please note that I am referring to the hard drive password, and not the administrative password.
