I too have a similar problem. That`s why I came to this site. I have no standby option, just hibernate. The system will not hibernate on its own, I must push the power button so its basically useless.
I have downloaded all the latest drivers. Hardware list:
P5A motherboard, AMD K6-2 380 PROCESSOR, SoundBlaster PCI 512, ATI Rage Fury Pro video card, WD 40 gig Hd, USR pro modem.
For me too this is very frustrating since I am operating a small business from my home and my computer must be left on.
If anyone can, please help!

I have XP... not sure if this will help but.... right click desktop then properties then click the screen saver tab then click on power...on the power schemes tab I have all the settings at never and on the advanced tab the options are both cleared.
When I select start >Turn of computer my standby option is available and works fine.

hope that helps
