In Reply to: Windows XP Standby status by ColdWest

Mark, I was hoping for webserf to reply...

In any event, my query was a follow-on to his statement and is in respect of spam e-mail or other obtrusive stuff - when I use (Win XP) standby, is there any greater risk of access to my e-mail or PC than if I were in sleep mode? I think not, but am willing to learn if I am wrong...

I do not necessarily log off my gmail account, so am thinking that perhaps there may be some risk if I do not, regardless of how I shutdown my own PC.
Hopefully, this is clearer.
