Unable to go to standby after after OS upgrade from 2000 pro to XP pro

    I have recently upgraded from MS 2000 Pro to XP Pro on my T23,
    (2647-5NU). I get this error whenever it needs to go to standby, (closing
    the lid, etc...).

    The device driver for the "WAN Miniport (IP) - Novell Virtual Private
    Network Miniport" device is preventing the machine from entering standby.
    Please close all applications and try again. If the problem persists, you
    may need to update this driver.

    I would appreciate any advice or answers to eliminate my problem? TIA

    If you have a copy of the drivers for your Novell Network device, you
    can uninstall it in Add or Remove Programs I believe. Reboot, and when
    the Found Hardware Wizard appears, choose cancel. Now install the
    drivers for the Novell Network device and reboot again.

    Go to the IBM support site and get the correct XP drivers for the hardware
    in your thinkpad. XP installs generic drivers that usually don't work....
