Are you using a laptop in a docking station? That's the only thing I can think of for "eject PC."

The "Suspend" is part of the power management system. But on my system, it appears on the "Shutdown" dialog box as an option...

Both sound like they are part of the power management functionality (something which has already *earned* a bad reputation). To see what your power settings are, right click on the desktop, select properties then the screen saver tab. Under "Energy Saving Features," select the Settings... button. If the power scheme is "Always On" or "Portable/Laptop," you'll see the suspend command on your Shutdown Dialog Box.

Now, for the third option, since you don't know what it is, I don't know what it is so I can't tell you what it does....

The "Eject PC" option usually occurs when you are using a docking station. And "Suspend" option is related to Power Management. If your CMOS supports this, and when you enabled this option, the menu will show up.
