It could be related to a fualty power supply. When in standby, the computer is using little power, then when it trys to wake up, it's pulling voltage, which the PS cannot handle. The time the computer is in standby, the PS is still active. This could explain why you have to unplug it, and wait a few seconds. How large a power supply is it, and how much hardware do you have attached, i.e. CD ROM, Floppy, how many Hard Drives, etc. If you keep having problems out of it, you may want to keep the computer from going into standby- that's only a short-term solution, as I believe the power supply is on its way out.

Now that I think about it, pctechmike has a point. I would definatly agree on that.

theres only my pc and monitor hooked up, i just opened up my bios and in the power management under acpi i think it said it was enabled but in the power management bit it said that suspend and doze and some other were disabled.
i set the suspend here to 1 hour. should i set the suspend in winxp off or can i leave it the way it is at one hour, will the bios override the xp one or can i disable one of them?
thanks for reply

a better way to handle it might be to put the computer in "hibernate" mode instead of standby.
