Hello, I recently formatted and reinstalled Win XP on my IBM T41 (2373-1FU) and the sleep or hibernate functions do not work. When I hit Start button and then Turn Off Computer the Stand By function is not highlighted and I cannot use it. Also, the Sleep hot key on my keyboard (picture of moon) does not do anything. Any ideas on how I can fix this. Thanks!~

Did you install all the special IBM hardware drivers?

In my experience you are better off without them so noo loss. If you want to set timings, power options, but I will never hibernate.

Generally, that would either be with the chipset drivers, or with a special power control program. Since IBM laptops were sold to Lenovo, try their site.
