    After erasing Vista and formatting hard disc, (new computer), XP Pro has been installed with success. However, the standby function does not work, the computer would wake up after about 5 seconds for no reasons. No mouvement of the mouse , no background activity is enabled. The same applies to all BIOS settings.
    What could have gone wrong?
    A missing driver perhaps?
    Thanks for your suggestions.

    Try the settings under control panel, otherwise you just hit the on button to get it working again :)

    Sometimes wireless mouse/keyboard might cause that issue.
    If you do use something like that unplug it and try again...

    Thank you all, but it was a missing driver that caused the problem.
