Can't restore from standby

Hi

Does anybody know how to resolve the following problem. A colleague of mine has a new Mesh desktop pc. When he puts xp into standby/ hibernate mode the pc goes into standby with the power light flashing as with other pc's. However there is no way of bringing it out of standby. Mouse or keyboard movements and pressing the power button do not restore it. He has to fully reboot by holding down the power button. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Surely if this is a new Mesh Desk Top PC a quick call to there Tech' support should solve this.
If on XP try a restore point.

Ever tried to contact Mesh technical support? Just wondered in anyone had a quick fix.

Don't understand this remark, is it a question or a statement?

The problem re: Tech' support I do understand,you have my sympathy there.

I always think this is an odd route in to power management

Right click desktop > properties > screensaver > power button and alter your settings there.

Out of interest I have just looked at my standby in settings and note it requires 736 MB of space?

That seems a lot of space to me.

Yes. I have a Dell and it came set up with power saving in mind. Very good too. I found that the route out was tedious and slow so whilst its not very green I have disabled it.

On the point you make, I do not know is the answer. It is a lot of space but of course all your work is saved there. What I am unsure about is whether it is then ever usable, I suppose the answer must be no given it is saved for potential stand-by/hibernate.
