Any idea why the Standby button is greyed out when I shutdown my PC?

4) Select the "Advanced" tab across the top

Drivers or a hardware change?

Which OS?

This usually happens when either no or the wrong drivers are installed for the graphics card , download and install the correct or latest ones and it should then work .

Little one is doing well, taking to solid food like a duck to water :D

Your query:
It seems this happens because of drivers and/or power management settings.

See your options in control panel, power options.
Someone in another thread said to look at power options in BIOS.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.
