    Question on behalf of a friend of mine.
    He uses Windows 98 se... he says he had an option during shutdown for standy by...
    When I went to his house to check it out for him and hit start /shutdown.. there was only three options
    log off/restart/shutdown.

    he said he used to have standy by as an option and he used to use it all the time.
    Well I don't want to disappoint the OL timer, I sure would like to set his options to have standy by back for him.
    Any ideas...

    A big thanks in advance for any help...

    A computer will tend to run better and have less problems with its power management options disabled.

    You might consider reading my article on how to disable power management.
