Need help with two problems.
Problem one is a booting problem.
When turning the computer using the power button the computer will start to boot my lights in the CD Rom and floppy drive will light up then it will stop booting. When I push the reset button it will the boot into Windows. This will not happen all the time, sometimes when I hit the power button it will boot to windows without stopping. What can I do to get my computer to boot to windows without hitting the reset button?

Problem two
Going into standby some times no problem. Sometimes I get this message. System Stand Failed. The device driver for the ‘Standard 101/102- key or Microsoft natural PS/2 Keyboard’ device is preventing the machine from entering standby. Please close all applications an try again. If the problem persists you may need to update the driver.
What can I do to fix this?

Generally this means that your keyboard is in active use, and therefor the computer can't standby.

My guess is that one of your keys is jammed. You can:

1) make sure your keys ARN'T jammed, unplug your keyboard and plug it back in
2) If they aren't, or if this doesn't help, reinstall the drivers for your keyboard.
3) If you don't feel like doing #2, or it doesn't work, there should be some setting to prevent your keyboard from pulling your computer out of sleep.

Problem Solved

The issue may occur if Adobe Type Manager is installed on your Computer. Certain versions of Adobe Type Manager (version 4.0 for example) may not be compatible with the power management features of windows XP.
To resolve this issue remove (uninstall) Adobe Type Manager.
