win2000 server access denied

Have set up a win2000 server as a member server of a domain.  I need to run an application on this server but I do not want to use the administrator login.  If I use another domain login, even with admin privileges on the domain I am not able to make local setup changes like for example power options on the control panel.  If I try to change one of those settings (turn off monitor time setting in the powere options) I get an "Access is Denied" dialog box.  I can make local changes with the administrator login but they don't carry over to the other logins on the machine.  Anything I can do here?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Try adding the other login to the local administrators group on the server.

Right click my computer - Manage
Select Local Users and Groups - add the user to the administrators group.
