A lot of newer 'name-brand' PCs have a hibernate button on the keyboard.
Hitting it is the same as manually doing Start->Shutdown->Stand By which
will force the computer into stand-by mode irrespective of what's
running.  I imagine this is acheived by mapping a macro to the
appropriate key.  Check out TUCOWs or some other download site for a
macro mapping program and create your own that'll suit your keyboard.
