Missing power options in server 2003

We have a Dell poweredge 1950 running win2003 standard. The only power option we can configure is the monitor standby time. Where can we get our other options configureable. Thank you!

Easiest is to use the commandline powercfg.exe

You still don't get everything you would in Windows for Desktops... but do you really want your server hiberating randomly because it thinks it isn't being used?

Thanks.  The command line utility also shows "not available" for sleep options, etc.

Right, was just using that as an example.  What we are looking for is the option to shut the machine down if it's on battery power for a certain amount of time (be it shutdown, hibernate, etc).

Seems like we found that option under power options and then low and critical battery alarms.  One of the options under the alarm was to trigger a shut down when it reaches that point.  That should handle it.
