    Default [SOLVED] ZA prevents XP from going into standby

    Since I installed zone alarm I noticed that windows XP will no longer put my monitor into standby. When I disable Zone alarm my monitor will go into power down mode normally. Is there anything I can do to force zone alarm to allow windows Xp to go into stand by mode? It will start the screensaver but it will not go into standby mode. Since it worked fine before zone alarm was installed and works when zone alarm is disabled I am pretty sure ZA is the problem. Does it somehow interfere with the timer windows uses to enter standby mode?

    Default Re: ZA prevents XP from going into standby

    Hi!

    could you please detail the exact version of ZA used? (right click the ZA icon near the clock --> about --> Copy to clipboard --> paste in a response). Also specify the exact version of XP and SP?. Please give an indications of the antivirus or any malware tools you use as ZAfree does not come with an antivirus. Never happen before? First time you install ZA?

    Finally you should also specify if you have an uncommon timing for standby. 2 hour? Default? Less than 30 minutes?Double check the setting. Set it to default and test it again.

    More information you provide more likely other users here may be able to help.

    Thanks,
    Fax

    I disabled zone alarm then took the power down timer to two min and it worked so I thought zone alarm was the problem. I restarted zone alarm and put the timer back to 15 min and it also worked. I don't know why but for some reason it works fine now. It wouldn't go to standby for a few weeks but after disabling and then re enabling zone alarm it works fine.
