Is this a laptop or a desktop? Can you press a key to get back to the screen you were just at? Paste the output of /sbin/lsmod here please.

It doesn't even stay on long enough to get to that /sbin/lsmod. By the way it is a desktop computer. I'm stumped.

Just after you log in press CTRL-ALT-F1. THis should bring you to console mode. It may disable the standby mode long enough for you to run /sbin/lsmod. Also show me the contents of your /etc/modules file. If the CTRL-ALT-F1 thing doesn't work for you do a CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE. That will kill the X server.

One other question. Do you have a graphical login? If so, does the standby mode kick in there too?
