Q. Your system time freezes in standby mode or hibernate mode in Windows XP with IBM Tivoli Endpoint client?

If you remove the network cable while Windows XP is entering standby or hibernation, the IBM Tivoli Endpoint client causes the system time to freeze until the computer is reactivated.

NOTE: This behavior only happens when IBM Tivoli Endpoint is running and the network adapter is active.

NOTE: This does NOT happen if you pull the cable after the computer is fully on standby or in hibernation.

NOTE: This behavior will also occur on Windows Server 2003.

This behavior occurs because one of the network adapter drivers does not respond quickly enough to a power I/O request during a suspend query.

To workaround this problem behavior, wait at least 15 seconds before you pull the network cable after your computer goes on standby or hibernates.
