When your attempt to put Windows 98 in Standby mode, you may receive the following error message:

Your computer cannot go on standby because a device driver
or program won't allow it. Close all programs and try again.

If you close all programs and attempt to put Windows 98 into Standby mode again, you receive the same error message.

This can occur if a program, driver, or hardware device is preventing Windows 98 from going into Standby mode. To resolve this behavior, use the Power Management Trouble Shooter tool to determine which program, driver, or hardware device is preventing Windows 98 from going into Standby mode.
