Windows 2000 Server Power Options

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?
