Hello Everyone, New member here, seems like a great place for advice so maybe someone can help.
My Daughter has a dell inspiron 1200 running XP that is about 5 yrs old and had slowed to a crawl, so she bought a new one when she graduated from college. I reformated and reinstalled XP and all the drivers and added a gig of ram. Runs great now but now the standby or hibernate is no longer active and I can't figure out what to do. Any ideas??
Many thanks

Hibernate you can add from Control Panel -> Power Options.
Standby usually appears on its own after installing all the drivers, sometimes extra utilities from Dell's site for your model are needed.
