      By standby I believe you mean put your computer to sleep. Simple.

      Click on Start.
      In the empty search box type in “Power Options”
      Open up the program.

      Click the “Change when the computer sleeps” option.

      Put the computer to sleep: 10 minutes
      Turn off the display: 10 minutes

      After 10 minutes of inactivity (no mouse movement, etc) your tower will go to sleep as well as your monitor.

      You can also enable hibernation on your server as well and set a timeout for this process to begin as well.

      Click on Start.
      Type in cmd.exe
      Open up Command Prompt

      Type in the following command:

      powercfg -h on
      powercfg -x -hibernate-timeout-ac 60

      The computer will enter hibernation mode after 60 minutes of inactivity.

      You can disable this by typing “powercfg -h off” if you do not want this feature any longer.
