Windows XP/Hibernate and Standby status


After finishing each session, I put my PC into standby, but lately after several hours it restarts without any prompting. I have not changed anything i am aware of. What may be causing this and any way to remedy it?
I am using a HP Pavilion a200n, and windows XP home edition.

Thank you,

Many things can cause this. Outdated drivers,
Powers schemes on control panel not set up correctly
As far as the time it should stay on as you set it for.
You can try Microsoft site and their suggestion.
