Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

What OS are your users using? Secondly why do you want to remove the Standby?

    Hi I am not sure if you mean hibernate or standby but If you mean hibernate go to start--settings--control panel---power options--- click on the hibernate tab and remove the checkmark. DO NOT do this on a laptop since hibernation if useful for laptops but not for regular POC'S. Mary Ann

    Users have Windows XP Pro. It's a lab situation with Visual Casel desktop management and want to make sure everyone has to log out so the next person sitting down doesn't accidently dive in using someone else's profile.

    'Standby' is in the Shutdown/Logoff menu if APM (AutoPowerManagement) is enabled. This enable/diable is down in 'bios setup' before the operating system boots. If you do not need APM for soft shutdown or auto restart, then disable on the 'power' tab/menu for bios (way too many for specific steps). If you disable APM then on the next boot the 'Standby' option should be gone. Good luck.
