Thanks for insisting wraith808.
Well, i un-installed Evernote and with Dropbox running, i couldn't go into "standby mode" at all (something it did before).
So, i uninstalled Dropbox too and rebooted.
Installed Evernote once more, had it running with no problems going into or coming out of standby mode.
So, i then decided to try latest Dropbox "experimental" from Betanews and it seems to be doing fne so far.
In fact, with both running, no problems.
I can't figure this one out.
Besides, i have better things to do than to trouble the good folks here.
Guess i'll have to mozy on down to Dropbox and Evernote forums to let users who have similar issues know that it could be a conflict between these two programs or others too right? I also have Windows Essential Sync and other programs like FARR running.
