Restore Suspend option


The suspend option disappears when the machine fails to resume 2 consecutive times. Resetting the registry values will bring the option back.

It would be valuable to know exactly what is causing the machine to fail to resume. You can visit the Windows 98 APM troubleshooting site for more information.

To recover the Suspend or Stand by Option:

  1. Start the Registry Editor
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ System \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ VxD \ Vpowerd
  3. Subtract 00000200 from the Flags entry
  4. Set the SuspendFlag entry to 0
  5. Restart Windows
