Is windows standby failsafe in as much as it reactivates with the shake of a mouse like screensaver does. I am a PC user of many years and have never used it. As I have my PC at one end of my lounge and my TV at the other, I often find the PC noise distracting - but don't want to turn it off. The PC I have now is noisier than my 3 previous ones and fancy giving the standby feature a go. I use XP Home and would welcome some advice re. a) standby's guarantee to kick back in, and b) some advice on settings. Thanks for your help.
