I love XP's feature to autostandby or autohibernate. However, sometimes I
notice that it mysteriously does not happen - even if I there are no active
network connections of any sort.

Does anyone know how to debug this? The Event Viewer shows nothing. The
only symptom is that I can come back a while later and the computer has not
standbied or hybernated.

I should add that if I enter standby or hibernate manually, it works fine.

Power saving modes were intended for laptops; they can be balky when used
with a desktop.

Sorry for not being more clear:

A) It is a laptop (Compaq Presario R3000)
B) It can hibernate and standby manually fine - but it no longer does it
automatically
C) I am not running any special screen saver, playing any games, etc.
