Regarding a laptop.
I have the same computer here that I had issues getting Windows
installed on. The guy who owns this thing wants to have the
"Standby" function enabled. I know, I know, don't even start with
the freakin' flames, okay? It's a laptop, why would you want standby
mode? Not my 'puter, and I'm just doing what the guy asked. But...
The issue is, when I go into power management, I have no options,
anywhere, to enable standby mode on this thing. Now, apparently,
Windows detected that this is indeed a laptop, as that's what the OS
configured itself for.
Question is this: Can I enable Standby on this thing? The last
laptop this guy had, he swears it had standby options enabled. This
one, I can't find it anywhere. As far as I can tell the
knowledgebase as MS doesn't address it specifically for laptops.
This is a Dell Inspiron 1720 running Windows XP Pro. Corp.
BIOS, ACPI enabled?
There is no option anywhere in the BIOS to enable or disable ACPI...
