Hello Experts,

When I try to shut down my Windows 2000 Server, it will not fully shut down.  It goes to a screen that says “it is say to shut down you computer”.  Now I had Windows XP installed the same machine and I was able to get by this by using Advance Power Management.  But I don’t see this option in W2k server.  Any suggestions?

I ran it and got the followiing results

This computer appears to have an APM legal HAL
This machine has an APM bios present that looks OK, and it is
not on the list of machines known to have APM problems.
Check the power applet in the control panel to see if APM is enabled
APM Registry Data Dump
Major = 0001  Minor = 0002
InstallFlags = 0007
Code16Segment = f000  Code16Offset = 80bc  DataSeg = fdfa
Signature = APM
Valid = 0001
Detection Log Data:
44 45 54 4c 4f 47 31 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

Doesn't look like it's supported.  Check the above solutions, but you might have a hard time getting it working.
