In some of the computer has "suspend" mode is in the win95 menu bar, but some don't have it even though the system has power saving mode enabled. The only thing I can get is "power" icon from control pannel.
I know most of notebook computer has that mode but is there a way to get on desktop ?

Only if you have the capability in your Bios. if not you may be able to buy a new bios, about $35.oo to $50.00. You may have it already. look in you bios.
Also Go to http://www.microsoft.com/kb/default.asp
and type search phrase ADVANCED POWER. There is over 75 articles on it. best yougo thru it because you know you system better than me, and much of it is system exclusive.

Let me know if i can help further.

Did you look and see if you have APM in your bios?
I don't mind rejection, but if you tell me why, then I can persur other avenues.

Try this: search for "suspend" in the online help. It should show a topic: "Suspend command: showing or hiding". Follow the instructions. They should work if your system can do power management, as smeebud says.
