I changed the battery in my desktop & now it won't go into standby or hibernate.It is a seven year old Compaq running XP service pack 3.Also sometimes it will hang at the Compaq screen on startup.I have to push the power button 2 or 3 times to get it to start properly.Any ideas? :cr@sh:

Have you tried configuring the Power Options in the Control Panel?

Screen-savers and Antivirus program could prevent a PC from going into standby or hibernate modes.

 

The power options could have been saved in the BIOS and after removing the battery it could have been deleted or reset.
