    i wonder if one of you very intelligent guys can take a look at this for me.
    i left my pc in standby made this morning but when i arrived home this evening and pressed the space bar to bring it out of standby i got the message "preparing to standby" then a blue screen with an error code. taking a look at the minidump info it has something to do with ntoskrnl.exe+22f5f. is this something i should be worried about?
    cheers for all your help

    Goldenskull I can't follow the rules

    I looked at the file there 0x000000f4 has to do with your paging file.

    It seems your Paging file might be corrupted.


    It could be Bad Registry .

    Either one




    Co insides with kinda both.ntoskrnl.exe

    Here is a link to Microsoft.

    Just my opinion, but that is a very long time to be on Standby.

    Do you have Hibernation enabled?
    If you did, it should have hibernated long before you returned home.

    IMHO, if you're not going to shut down, better to manually put the machine into Hibernation before leaving for an extended period.

    Suppose there is a thunderstorm or some electrical disturbance while you are away.

    You didn't indicate whether the pc is a desktop or laptop. If it's a laptop where battery power is involved, standby mode may be useful. I would avoid using standby mode with a desktop insofar as I have observed many users post about similar instability coming out of standby. Some geeks and moderators can corroborate this or advise on how to better analyze and work out the issue. Good luck.

    it's a desktop. i didn't know that using standby in desktops could cause problems.
    i've never had any issues in the past with standby although my desktop is nearly five years old so maybe it's time to upgrade from xp to win7 and get myself a new hdd. i think i'll take your advice and give standby a miss from now on.
    thanks to everyone for their comments
