Tell me how to enable Suspend/Standby in W2000. I tried all power management options. I had it previously in W98 and my Mother board supports this feature.
Win2000 powermanagement options does not display a standby option.

In DUN, if I save my pwd, the next time i open it the password box has changed contents. Any workaround.

1) I had this problem, and the solution was to turn ACPI on in my BIOS. Have you got this option?

2) The password is actually the same--Windows 2000 just displays a different number of asterisks to prevent a casual hacker working out how long your password is. If you click Dial without changing the password you should find it connects OK.

I do not have an ACPI option in my CMOS. I face one more problem: As soon as the first logo screen disappears, my monitor goes to suspend mode and resumes only at the login screen. Any solution.

What do you mean by the "first logo screen"? If you mean the graphical progress bar (as opposed to the black-and-white progress bar), then it sounds like somehow your card is set to too high a resolution during that phase of bootup, although I'd expect the login screen to suffer the same problem if that were the case. It's not a problem I've encountered, sorry.
