Enabling Stand By and Hibernate on Task Manager Shut Down menu-item RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have XP SP3 (Media Center Edition) installed on a Dell Dimension E310. For some reason, the Shut Down and Hibernate options are under-lit and unavailable on the Shut Down menu-item in Task Manager.

    What can I do to enable them?

    BTW, Control Panel + Power Options + Hibernate tab has the Enable hibernation checkbox checked.

    Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide.
