Thank you for your help. In standby, my powersupply fan and case fan are still running. My older Dell PC doesn't do that. The case fan has a 3 prong connector that plugs into the motherboard. Would that be a powersupply problem, a motherboard problem, or something else?

Also coming out of standby I can't click on my speaker icon in the system tray. I've read that might be a sound driver problem that can only be fixed by installing a newer driver, only problem is I've got the latest Intel Integrated AC?97 Audiosound driver, and the motherboard is out of support.

Case: Systium Technologies M/N 545
Power supply: Systium Technologies M/N ST300-PFCN
Mainboard: Intel M/N D845GBV Bios: version P17
Processor: Intel P4 2.20GHz 400MHz 478 pin
RAM: x2 Dataram M/N DTM63606F 256 MB · DDR · 266 MHz
OS: XP Home SP2 Norton 360

Suspend/standby mode often causes problems, especially on older hardware. Since your system is pretty much obsolete, you may want to consider getting a new one if the issues bug you too much.
