Laptop Standy & Hibernate NOT ON XP?!

Hi everyone!

About one week ago, I decided to reinstall Windows XP onto my laptop. I did this by formatting the C: Then inserting the Windows XP installation disk that came with the computer.

After finishing installation, I noticed that something had gone wrong.

"NO MATTER WHAT I DID TO THE SETTINGS, STANDBY AND HIBERNATE FUNCTIONS WERE NOT INSTALLED ONTO THE LAPTOP!"

I searched all over the internet for patches and updates, unfortunately I found none to help me. It's as if the XP cd just forgot to install this function.

Does anybody know how I can obtain these .exe / function files?

NB - I do have another computer if that helps, does anybody know the exact links/path/filename of these so that I can transfer them from this computer to the laptop?


Thanks a lot!!

Try clicking on Start then Turn Off Computer. Keep your finger on shift and the hibernate option should appear.


Another option could be to look in the BIOS to see if the power management features have been disable somehow.
