Is there any way to disable the fade to black effect when Windows enters standby state? I have a tablet PC and when I press the power button I want the screen to turn off immediately, not showing me some silly animation that gives me the impression of being SLOW.

Which version and edition of Windows? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jan 22 '12 at 1:01
Edited the question. Who downvoted me? wth?! – friederbluemle Jan 22 '12 at 2:08
It was not me, but one of the reasons for downvoting is that it shows no research effort. Perhaps that is the case here. – soandos Jan 22 '12 at 2:48
Possible duplicate:… although that one is about fading in not out, but answer should be the same: not possible. – Baarn Jan 22 '12 at 3:41
I did see that other question (which is similar but about login screen to desktop instead of entering standby). Also I did some research before asking the question but couldn't find anything directly related. Anyway, I expected that there is no easy way to do this. – friederbluemle Jan 22 '12 at 4:17
