Default Standby help

I have had my PC for almost a year now, but yesterday I tried to put it on standby like I have done many times before and it goes into standby mode, then immediately starts up again and returns me to the windows login page. The only new hardware I have installed recently is a hauppage tv card, would that have made any difference? If so, does anyone have any ideas on how I can fix it?

Thanks

Mine does the same thing, was never sure why and I never use it, so I didn't care. It doesn't matter that much does it?

I regularly use standby, so it does matter to me. It's not a major problem but I'd like to get it sorted out.

Well, if it is indeed so important to you, then this Microsoft thread may just help you. It seems to be a problem with a Windows service.
