    Well, as an addendum to what I have been experiencing with my TX, the computer started doing the 'no video, no post' thing that the TX's are known for. I sent the motherboard off to have the issue resolved by reballing the nVidia chip and whatever else they do to get the video, wi-fi, etc. working again. As it turns out, the motherboard reportedly has a short-circuit somewhere between the board layers. I wonder if this 'short' was present while it was semi-working and is the cause of the standby not operating correctly.... I'll get the MB back in the next day or two and I'll investigate it further then. Thanks to you all.

    Here's the latest on the TX1000z saga... I purchased a 'good, used' motherboard on ebay to replace the 'shorted' one in my TX. I started the computer after installation and, lo, to my surprise, the computer goes into full standby when I close the lid and comes out of standby when I open it back up. The standby issue was caused by the MB after all. This may be useful for anyone out there who is experiencing similar symptoms. Thanks to you, HellParker, for the helpful suggestions. I'm sure that they took care of some of the problems. "See' y'all around the inter-webs.

    we're not allowed to discuss installing os x on a pc in this forum.

    you can, however, pray to google for some good results or check other sites

    sorry to burst your bubble,
