I have a Dell Dimension 8100 (pentium 4)with WinMe preinstalled. My problem is with the "stand by" function. Whenever I put the machine in stand by the hard drive turns off but the fans keep going. Is this normal for Dell PC's and WinMe? I'd rather just put my computer in standby then having to shutdown and restart it all the time. Shutting the PC down seems to be the only thing that shuts the fans off.
