I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook running XP Home. The Standby Button is grayed out and there is also no a option in the power settings for the notebook to go into standby when closing the notebook. I found one possible solution on the net (below). Does it sound kosher?

Notebook has STANDBY button grayed out.

1) Click the "Start" button in the bottom left hand corner of the screen.
2) Select the "Control Panel"
3) Click the "System" icon within the "Performance and Maintenance " section
4) Select the "Advanced" tab across the top
5) Click "Settings" within the "Performance" section
6) Select the "Advanced" tab
7) Near the bottom there is a "Change" button, click this
8) Within the "Virtual memory" section there is a button "System managed size"
9) Click this and then the "OK" -- 3 times, to exit the settings.
Restart your machine and STANDBY is once again an option.

Thanks

All I can see this doing is re confirming to Windows of the Page File size. I see no harm in trying this solution and see if it works. Are you sure you didn't omit a directiion between 8 and 9?

Thanks, I'll give it a try and see if it works.
Re: your question did I omit a step between 8 & 9 ?, I did the ole cut and paste and sent it to you exactly as it appeared on the web.
