Default Standby or sleep - 01-29-2009, 07:51 PM

My mini Hibernates properly, but when I leave it in standby for a few minutes it hibernates (there plenty of battery life left). I would like to be able to leave it in standby. Is there a setting I have messed up somewhere? I have BIOS A04, and am running Xp.

In the Control Panel under Power Options, the last two drop downs control when it goes to sleep and when it hibernates. Make sure hibernation is much much later (or "Never" if you so choose.)

Well d'oh!! I knew that I could set the mini to standby and then sleep if I left it unattended. It didn't strike me that it would go from one stage to the next if I had put it in standby! Memo to self: think through
