Trouble booting from standby

February 27, 2013 4:52:28 PM

Hi Guys,

I've got a diy system that I put together a few years ago. It's been pretty solid over the years. We just moved to a new house and I've started having trouble when I try to bring my pc out of standby. Instead of shutting down completely at night, i just throw it in standby. If I hit the power button again within a short time, i recover completely with no issue. However, it seems that when I let it sit overnight and try to recover, it hangs up. The monitors dont come on nor does the mouse. I have to do a hard reset each time to reboot and then I'm good. Any ideas??

The rig:
intel 2.6 dual core oc'd to 3.4 with a w/c
2 gig ram (ha! i know)
running xp
