are all the proper drivers installed?
Check device manager and see if anything is screwy.
I"m almost to the point of installing my system so I was getting the computer ready(installing XP, loading mp3s, etc) but for whatever reason the option for hibernate and standby is grayed out from the shutdown menu. I did some of the registry tweaks floating around the forums so maybe I did screwed up something there. Also in frodoplayer neither hibernate or shutdown work, I'm assuming because of the dependencies. Should I reinstall XP? Clean install? Is this something in the registry?
Is it a BIOS setting? These are the settings I'm using.
HDD Powerdown: [Disabled]
Power Management Timer: [Disabled]
Video Off Option: [Suspend -> Off]
Power Off by Power Button: [Instant Off]
Run VGA BIOS if S3 Resume: [Auto]
AC Loss Auto Restart: [On]
300W ATX PSU(for in home testing and set up, hibernate works with other computer using this PSU)
sometimes you have to enable it in windows...
control panel> Poweroptions
mobo $130 ; 150wOpus-$200 ; 256mb pc2700 -$10 ; 120gb HDD 7200-$70 ; Lilliput TS 7"-$265 ; USB LAN-Free AR ; Rikaline 6010 GPS-$34 ; ShuttleXpress-$37

I forgot to mention that part.Originally Posted by cadence117
Power Scheme: Select power profile, turn off monitor, and turn off hdd
Advanced: show icon, when power button is pressed(shut down, restart, nothing)
No red exclaimations, but two yellow questions for USB controller and Video controller. I doubt these are the problem but I'm gonna get the drivers off Via's website in a sec.Originally Posted by wizardpc
It's the video controller I just had the same issue. You need the drivers for the vid controller installed.

Yeah i had this exact problem when i made a stripped down XP cd with nLite. Those options were greyed out till i installed my video drivers and rebooted.
As well as installing the rest of the drivers, make sure under Computer in Device manager, that it's set to ACPI Uniprocessor Machine.
I got all of the drivers installed, no conflicts in device manager, and Standby now works however hibernate is still grayed out. Alternatively, should I just use standby since I am using an opus 90W which has a battery management feature which will prevent the battery from draining?
Confused: Yes ACPI PC is under Computer in device manager.
