When i was running Win98SE I had the option to put my computer in standby mode, I upgraded to Windows 2000 Professional and that option is gone now. No hardware has been changed. Can someone tell me why and can I get a standby mode back?

I have been in the power options many times, there is no standby mode at all. It seems that W2K does not support standby with my hardware but win 98 does.

Yes, I know I have power options, however I don't have standby in the power options. I guess Windows2000 does not support that option with my hardware, but in Windows98SE it does, unless someone can suggest how to get standby in power options when its not there at all to begin with?
