Standby option inactive

My problem is that I can't use the "Standby" option. When I click on Start -> Turn off Computer, the Standby option seems inactive/disabled. The problems start appearing since last couple of days, and I don't remember if I changed anything that might have led to this problem.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Even I have the same problem. The standby option seems to be inactive and I don't find any other way to put my laptop in standby mode.
    A new problem apart from this that I have been noticing since past couple of weeks is when we go through this path (my computer->tools->folder option->view) and select the option "show hidden files and folders" then it automatically changes the option to "Do not show hidden files and folders". It means if we hide a folder, it is difficult to unhide it.
    If you have any solution to any of these problems, please reply.
  2. for the hidden file-problem,
    Go to registry editor by running regedit in the run box.
    Go to this key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\
    Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

    In the right hand area, double click hidden and change the value to 1.
    I think it will work
    thank you
