hi Jim how do I put my computer in stand by mode? so what your saying that when I know that I'm going to be away from the computer for any length of time it is better to put it in stand by mode than just let it sit there or turning it off, and then turning it back on in a hours time.

When I put my computer in to standby mode, which as I understand is the best way to leave it if I don't intend to use it for a while, what should I do to bring it back to life? I don't know a lot about computers and that is one of the many things I don't know. Thanks a bunch. Jim.
