Unbelievable that for the past few weeks I have been stumped as to why my desktop pc and laptop can take minutes (like 5) to resume from standby. On a hunch I uninstalled Skype, then found this and this.

If you write software that messes with my power management shame on you. Sometimes I hate computers. Two strikes with Skype. First the bad installer, now this. If you were on my Skype list, you can call me on my phone. It's listed on my Messenger Contact Card.
