    The last few times your computer went on standby it stopped responding. Would you like to prevent your computer from going on standby in the future?
  • Your computer stopped responding while in standby mode two times consecutively.
  • Advanced Power Management (APM) is not configured properly in your computer's Basic Input/Output System (BIOS).

Resolution

To resolve this issue, use the following steps:
  1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click System
  2. Click the Device Manager tab, and then double-click the System Devices branch to expand it.
  3. Verify that there is an Advanced Power Management Support entry under the System Devices branch. If this entry is present, click it, click Remove, restart your computer, and then skip to step 4. If this entry is not present, use the following steps:

    1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Add New Hardware.
    2. Follow the instructions on the screen to finish the Add New Hardware wizard.

If this wizard does not successfully detect and install support for APM, your issue may be related to problems with your hardware, and Microsoft recommends you contact your hardware manufacturer for further assistance.
  4. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Add New Hardware.
  5. Follow the instructions on the screen to finish the Add New Hardware wizard. If this wizard successfully detects and installs support for APM, continue to step 6.

  9. Restart your computer. Note that when you do so, Windows automatically detects your floppy disk controller, and the SuspendFlag entries in the registry are reset.
  10. Test to determine if the issue is resolved by clicking Start, and then clicking Shut Down. If the issue is resolved, do not continue with the remaining steps in this article. If the issue is not resolved, continue to step 11.

    NOTE: For information about how to edit the registry, view the Changing Keys And Values online Help topic in Registry Editor (Regedit.exe). Note that you should make a backup copy of the registry files (System.dat and User.dat) before you edit the registry.

    WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall Windows 98. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

    Use Registry Editor to view the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VXD\VPOWERD

    Verify that there is a "Flags" value and a "SuspendFlag" value. If these values do not exist, quit Registry Editor, and contact your hardware manufacturer for further assistance. If these values exist, verify that the data value of the "Flags" value is greater than or equal to 200. If it is, modify the data value of the "Flags" value by subtracting 200 from the current value. For example, if the value is currently 310, change it to 110. Change the data value of the "SuspendFlag" value to 0 if it is not already 0.
  12. Restart your computer.
