standby mode disabled and hibernate tab gone RRS feed

  • Question

  • MVP,

    I have windows XP sp3 computer.   On the "Turn off computer" menu with Stand by, Turn off, and Restart the Stand by option/icon is disabled/not active.     And on my Power Options Properties in my control panel the Hibernate tab is gone/not there.     Both the Standby and Hibernate were working and then for some unknown reason just stopped working. My motherboard does support these features as they were working before.   Is there any way to turn these windows xp features back on again via the registry or some other manual way?   Seems like a virus?   Anyone seen this behavior before?
