Standby problems with VPN 5000 Client on Windows XP

I am running VPN 5000 Client on Windows XP. Connection works perfectly fine. Actually I have the feeling the initial connection is faster compared with W2K.

My problem is, that after installation of the client, my laptop (XP Home) can not go to standby and hibernate any more.

When I try to go to standby, I get a message similar as "WAN Miniport Cisco VPN Client is preventing the system to go to standby". Trying to go to hibernate crashes the machine.

I tried various clients (5.0x, 5.1.7x) with no improvement.

Any help greatly appreciated
