Default standby in the shut down menu

I just re-installed XP Home, when I go to Start, Turn off computer the menu that pops up gives me 3 options, Hybernate, Turn Off, Restart.
I disabled the option to hybernate. The hybernate button is still there but not highlighted and is inopt. But my question is , on my other computer the option to stand by button is where the hybernate button is and I like to use the standby. How do I get the standby option in the shut down menu to replace the hybernate one?

Go under properties menu on your desktop. Click the Desktop tab and go under the power options you can select everything you are looking for there. It allows you to have your system go into standby if there is no activity for a period of time, it will shut down yoru monitor. Check that out and then you wont have to go to your START> Shut Down screen anymore.
