    Hello
    I have this problem w/ my Lenovo V100 laptop for few months now.
    I have it for 4 yrs, and it worked alright,
    I running Win XP Pro SP3 always let Windows update to do it .
    Running AVG 9 ,lately 2011 updated the security suite.
    Browsing with Mozilla Firefox 3.6.10 latest.
    When i browse sometimes i leave laptop for a time more then my 5 minute inactivity -standby .
    I come back the laptop is running monitor off ,but the standby light in front is not yellow ,mean system is on, i also have to sign on by fingerprint swipe if it is coming out of standby [or hard boot], I ran MAlware bite Anti MAlware software and that is cleans it ,then is ok, but i go browsing again ,some sites ,and is cumming back and wont standby .
    So i am perplexed what could be it, Anyone have a clue?

    I haven't the faintest idea why your laptop isn't going into standby...but if it just started, you might try a system restore...since obviously something has changed in the computer....

    Good luck...

    Could be that the screen saver is using a "Blank" screen and a login is required, and this is kicking in before the "Standby" is timed to kick in.

    Check to see if and what screen saver is being used, and then also check to see if a password in required.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
