Unhappy Putting Computer on Standby/Hibernation

l don't seem to be able to put my computer on standby or hibernate anymore. This starting happening about 2 weeks ago, up until then it worked fine. When l hit standby or hibernate, the computer will go down and start back up again straight away. Been into the Microsoft Help, did everything they said with power options, but no luck. O/S Pentium 4 - Windows XP Home Edition. Any suggestions!
Thanks

Are you getting any errors? What happens when you try to put the PC in standy/hibernate? Did you check the event log to see if there were any messages or errors listed there?

Did you install any new software or hardware before this started happening?

No errors come up. l log off, options come up for closing computer, standby or hibernation, press standby, computer appears to go down, within seconds comes on again showing desktop picture. Went into event log, don't see any problems. As far as l can remember l have only updated my anti-virus program, but that was after this problem. Hope this explains, still a novice when it comes to the nitty gritties of computers. Merci beaucoup!
