    Stand by not working in XP on M1-ATX

    Title says it all I tried changing the setting in bios from S1 to S1&S3 (it said it will allow the system to chose the correct one).
    Before the change and after the change my XP just ignores the stand by command.

    HW: EN15000, 2GB CF, M1-ATX;
    SW: Win XP SP2, EWF and Minlogon;

    Any hints ?

    Did you go into the Power Options control panel and set the action of the power button to standby? Hint: The option is on the Advanced tab.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    I did but the problem is that even after I manually try to go into stand by it doesnt do it.
    I checked running services, stopped a few but no success.
    I checked running tasks, stopped a couple... no success, it just ignores it.

    Do you have the two-wire cable running from the M1ATX to the power switch headers on your motherboard?

    Yes I do. The mobo turns on after the IGN wire gets +12V, no problems here.

    Have you tried reversing the polarity of the wire that goes to the motherboard switch? Some motherboards are picky that way.

    Just tried, still nothing.

    I changed the timer pins to A and luckily the pc turned off after about a minute. (So the M1 is not totally broken) A little strange tho, because I think it should power off at 45s like it says in the manual dont you ? OR maybe it is shutting down... thats why it takes that much longer ? pity I had to send the monitors for repair and I'm using VNC ...

    Please, any more hints ?

    Edit: No, it doesnt gracefully shut down, it just needs about a minute and then hard power off.

    Little update. Opened the case, unplugged the two-wire cable.. and started to short the pins manually. What a surprise... nothing happens! Whatever I set the action in windows after pressing the buttons, it just ignores it. It will power off the pc after 4 sec but the option in BIOS says "instant" not "4s delay". I tried it with S1, S3 and S1&S3 - no difference
    So that looks like a Windows-Mobo/Driver/compatibility issue, right ?

    The fact it wont go to stand by, even when selected manually, is a different problem (I think)... or maybe its connected somehow.

    Thanks for the help so far...

    You say it starts normally, correct? Just confirm that it is not starting because the BIOS has a "restart after power loss" setting. If that setting is set to not auto start, then the button/hardware is working correctly.

    It is therefore a software issue. Assuming you have tried all combinations of the windows and BIOS settings, then I would wipe the drive, and resinstall Windows again.

    Oh, one more thing, ARE YOU SURE YOUR VIDEO DRIVERS are installed, and you have the latest version. YES, the VID drivers can cause the hibernate/standby option not to appear. It is worth a try.
