I have an older laptop - Dell Latitude C840 - with Windows XP Pro SP3. Everything works fine except for standby. It will go into standby but has great difficulty getting back out. On resume, sometimes it will hang altogether or it can be slow as dirt with cpu running at 100%. From the Task Manager, the 'System' process is the one using the cpu.
It is a clean XP install that I did a couple of years ago, not Dell-installed.
Any ideas what it might be?
I came across this article.
I am not sure if it applies to my laptop. Should I append
/forceresetreg to my boot.ini file? Currently, it doesn't have this switch. I didn't specifically install this hotfix, but I think it should be part of SP3.
