Passwords don't disappear after the server's been switched off.

Seeing as you're not actually asking a question here, here's some advice.

Buy a UPS for the servers, so when the power does go down you'll be OK.

Or maybe the problem is that you're pressing alt+ctrl+del. I've always pressed ctrl-alt-del, so it might be the order of the keypress that's screwing things up.

I really hope my advice helps.
If it doesn't ... ah well.

for fallen passwords is on top of the server Under the server with the lost PW.

But this is not too common as the passwords are easily blown away from the AC in the server room.
Also, they seem to get scrambled up when someone does the dusting...

Try using the passwrord

for the Other server. It is likely that you mixed up the passwords and are using the wrong one.

Also, e-gremlins like to play games. Scream at the server, and tell it that you are gonna unplug it (trapping the e-gremlin). This has worked for many a person.

Another option is to hire a computer repair service person to come over and fix the issue for you.

And finally, The very best answer is simply to pull the case cover off of the server. Head-butt the motherboard (forehead to motherboard fixes are among the best in the world). Head-butt it really hard, make sure the e-gremlins inside know that you are pissed off at them. Keep doing this, as the jolting action makes them more compliant.
