    Hi everyone. Not too long ago, I started using System Standby with my Windows XP Professional computer. I have a Logitech Quickcam 3000 Pro webcam attatched to one of my USB Ports. Well, whenever I put my computer in Standby mode, my webcam turns itself on and it stays on even when I bring the computer out of Standby mode. I am wanting to figure out how I can at least make the webcam shut off when it comes out of Standby but I would really like to prevent it from coming on during Standby at all. I have noticed that when I turn on my computer, the webcam also comes on. However, it does turn itself back off before Windows comes on. If anyone could please help me figure this problem out, I'd greatly appreciate it. I did a search on Microsoft Knowledge Base but I didn't find anything. Later.

    Have you tried to send an email to Logitech Tech Support?

    Your not alone with this problem. I found this on the Logitech forum (Page 12 Sept. 8), I can't post the link, it doesn't go directly to the site but rather the main page of the forum. But there was no response to the question. I would still recommend emailing them, they are pretty good with their support.

    QuickCam Pro 3000 & Power Saving Sep 8, 2003 Ronald W
    Hi guys, I have a Logitech QuickCam Pro 3000. After I put my computer into suspend mode (suspend-to-ram, i.e. all fans, HDD, vga, CPU, etc are off except for ram), the logitech QuickCam Pro does is always "on" after waking the computer up. Supposedly I should be in power saving mode even when the computer is in full operation mode, unless the camera is requested by an application. So is there a way to fix this? Or is it a bug in the Logitech drivers?
    My system specs are:

    - Intel P4 1.8A
    - Asus P4T533-C
    - Topower 370W PSU
    - Asus GeForce FX 5200 Video Suite

    etc...
