    Win 7 Machines won't wake from standby.

    I have an office with 5 or 6 HP 8000 Elite SFF's and they simply won't wake from standby. The staff go home of an evening, as per our green policy the computer goes to sleep, they come in in the morning move the mouse/mash the keyboard etc and they simply will not wake. In the end they have to do a hard reset.

    Anybody got any ideas to what might be the problem? I have done a BIOS update, was thinking maybe HDD firmware also?

    According to t'internet, this might work:

    1. Boot into BIOS Setup
    2. Go to Power options
    3. Change the "ACPI S3 Hard Disk Reset" option to "Enable"
    4. Restart
