    Default Loss of Hinernate and Standby

    Hi Everyone,I have a Dell Laptop running Windows XP and Zone Alarm Security Suite version:7.0.337.000.I recently lost the Hibernate and Standby buttons (greyed out) from the shutdown window.I have been searching through the Microsoft discussion groups for an answer.
    One message did mention that ZoneAlarm has caused this problem in the past.Anyone with similar problems or a solution?

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Hello,I haven't heard of this version of ZoneAlarm causing the Hibernation and Standby function to be greyed out; though I could be wrong of course.Right click 'My Computer' and click on "Properties". Then go to "Device Manager"? Are there any exclaimation marks, etc to show that any of the drivers are having problems?Keep me informed, thanks. :8}

    No Exclaimation marks.I just had updates for Windows installed this morning.
    Still no change after that either.
