Windows XP Standby status
Webserf suggests sleeping the computer when you leave it. As I understand Windows XP at least, sleep mode is almost a full shut-down, whereas I typically use standby mode which is easier to wake and faster to get me back up online.
Is there a difference in security risk between the two?
If I do not sign out of a program does it remain exposed when I am on standby?
Thanks for your great input.
