id think as closely as your thinking.. or as to what you described above. fans will be off, power LED on your computer tower will probably flash, and i think u press power button on tower to return from standby. if u want to be able to have a keyboard or mouse input to disable standby mode, youll have to enable them in bios, if its supported
edit: the link above, i looked briefly but it looks like its similar to windows' 'hibernate' mode, which i dont think is what your looking for.. unless the page also has a 'standby' program, then im wrong. but hibernate mode in windows means the computer is completely powered off, and u have to fully boot it again to continue. but when it is back, it is in the state when u started the hibernate mode.
