    Faulty Shutdown

    When I re-boot my machine, instead it seems to go into some form "standby"...

    The monitor goes dark, and the "standby" light (green to range) goes on... the disk seems to go on standby too... the only way I can seem to fix this is to turn off the machine totally, wait at least 60 seconds, and then it will start... otherwise, it will not...

    ???

    What service pack are you on?
    Have you installed or re-installed any new software, any new hardware, or made any 'tweaks' since this behaviour started?
