What happens is that Standby is normal one time and then when I go online again and try to go to standby, it will go through all the motions but when it beeps, instead of the power supply powering off, it just keeps running and is unresponsive to any key strokes. I have to hold the power button for 4 secs to shut the system down. This will happen every other time. . When Standby does work and the computer resumes, I get the message that Windows is shutting down even though it's starting up. Everything else is normal though and then the next time I go to Standby, it will fail again as described.
If I had a wrong setting, why would it only happen every other session and not all the time? And it's very regular. It has always alternated like this.
