Standby problems with XP

When selecting "Standby" while using my Pavilion 7935 in WindowsXP, after I "wake up" the computer, the mouse is no longer activated and the cd-rom drive fails to open with a press of the external button. Is this problem just for me, or does anyone else with XP have these problems?

Re: Standby problems with XP

I'm assuming that it all is. The thing is that I've solved the problem, but just want to know if it occurs with anyone else's set-up. After I got the mouse running, I found I could open up the CD-RW drive by right-clicking the drive and selecting eject, so the hardware must be supported.
