Hey,
About 3 months ago my pc crashed, so i had to re-format it. and ever since i have never been able to use the Standby option. I know it might not seem a big deal but it is for me as i use it alot, due to my line of work i need to keep my pc on so it is quickly accesiable and at the moment my electrtic bill is through the roof because i cant use a simple option.

So does anyone have any ideas, has this happened to anyone else?

Cheers
Chris

Well thats good.

Download Everest Home Edition Install it and generate a log for me. On the left hand corner it says Everest Home edition. Right click it and choose to join a log in a text file. Copy the whole log and post it here.

Ouch I cannot help you with that. Its illegal and the site does not tolerate it. Sorry bud. WMP11 is not good anyway. WMP10 is better.
