Karl, As you can see from your own results, standardized coefficients do not add up to 1. Each standardized coefficient (beta) is the expected change in Y, measured in standard deviations, for each increase of one std deviation in X. There is no reason for these coefficients to add up to 1. The advantage of beta over b is simply that they are comparable to each other, and across studies, because they are independent of the unit of measurement and the distributional peculiarities of each variable, since all are measured in each variable's own standard deviation units. On the other hand, they are relative to the std deviation and are less understandable for readers, who may understand better the raw b coefficients (so much increase in Y for each unit increase in X, both measured in their natural units).
