    I was wondering if someone could help me out with a problem i got.

    A desktop PC i have with Windows XP keeps going in Stand By Mode then back to Desktop back & fourth etc. I tried a BIOS reset althou i hadnt even been into BIOS menu in over a year & also a complete Windows reinstall but its still doing it.

    I was able to check temps in the BIOS but that showed 35C so i doubt its that. The only thing i can think of now is its the PSU, anyone else ever have this problem ???

    This PC is not the one i have listed here with the i5 & 480GTX

    Ok after testing & replacing certain parts it turns out its the keyboard :bang:

    Someone has pissed about with it & created standby shortcuts. The odd thing is its not Windows bound, i have installed Windows 7 on the PC now & it still does it. Does anyone know how to turn these short cuts off ???
