    Where's the "StandBy" option in XP???

    When I shut down Windows XP, I don't even have the option to go into "StandBy" mode, which means I can't even go into "Hybernate" mode. I'm not sure, but I think this may have something to do with my computer's manufacturer disabling it. Does anybody know how I can override this? Thanks! Chris
