    I'm running Windows 2000 Pro on the Dell 610 dual Xeon system and
    the Power Options dialogue is all blank. The Power Schemes, `turn off
    monitor´ pulldown under the Power button of the Screen Saver box is
    inoperative and grayed-out.

    This function used to work fine. I've even run SFC from a Command
    window and Power menus are still dead. Didn't see anything in the
    BIOS either. Any suggestions?

    try running gpedit.msc from the run dialog.
    look thru all the settings.
    i think there is a way to turn those features off, and software you may
    have installed could change those without your knowledge.
    its easy enough to check.

    Has it always been a dual Xeon or is that what changed? If this is of
    the APM (vs. ACPI) vintage, APM doesn't work on multiprocessor machines:
