Check your BIOS to make sure that you have Power Management enabled. If disabled, Win2k doesn't load the ACPI kernel and this fuctionality will not work...

Haha, I also got this problem recently starting like a week ago. But I think it started after I flashed my bios, not sure. Going to follow this fella's advice though :)
