Standby problem

I have it set so when I close the lit of my laptop, it sleeps. But, it hibernates instead. How can I make it standby? Thanks!

I dunno. This is what it says on a microsoft site:

How to put your computer on standby automatically
On the taskbar, tap the Start button, and then tap Control Panel.
Tap Performance and Maintenance, and then tap Power Options.
On the Power Schemes tab, under Power schemes, tap the down arrow and then select the power scheme that you want to use.
Under Settings for power scheme, you can review System standby settings and adjust them if you prefer.

Use Standby and Hibernate

Is your bios set to s1 or s3?
