  • I am experiecing this EXACT issue:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310601

    However the hotfix will not allow me to install it for XP3 saying that the problem was corrected in SP1. Which is not correct. I am experieicing this exact issue.

    My XP sp3 machines are fully updated and on a domain. If my GPO settings are set to have the computer sleep/standby after 2 minutes, 10 minutes, 15, 20 minutes everything works fine. The computer goes to sleep normally.

    If I set the computer to sleep after 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 1 hour....nothing. it will sit there forever and never go to sleep.
