    Assuming that you're using MCE, then you must go into stand by from MCE and not winXP.

    Then when you come back Microsoft may have done one or most of the following:
    1. Remained on standby :eek: ;
    2. Woken, crashed & not rebooted :( ;
    3. Woken and rebooted, but not into MCE :mad: ;
    4. Woken into MCE successfully, but not recorded :suicide: ;
    5. Woken into MCE & recorded (but corrupted - not replayable) :confused: ;

    and it can even wake, record and and go back to stand by all by itself :cool: .

    I only say this, because that is my experience. Others of course may have had more or less luck :rolleyes: .
