It's probably a BIOS issue. Windows 2000 uses the ACPI interface for handling power management, including the auto power-off on shutdown, and if you have an old BIOS it might not be fully ACPI compliant. You could try upgrading the BIOS to whatever the latest version is for your motherboard, but that's not something I'd risk if this is a critical server, especially considering the problem is a minor one.
