    So when I hit the Sleep button on my laptop (I want to go to Standby mode), all that happens it the screen goes black and I can get back into the Desktop by hitting the Sleep button again.... Everything else seems to be running in the background..

    Is there a way to sytematically have it shutdown devices so I can have the hd idle, cpu clock stop, fans stopping etc, so when I hit the sleep button again to bring back the desktop I can resume what I was doing before?

    I checked the powersave/sleep file and all it has is modules to unload/re-load when going into/out-of standby mode, is this what I want to modify? Does anyone know the modules I need to enter for the above procedure?

    thanks a bunch,
