There are numerous reasons why the power management may not be enabled. If you have the termninal server enabled, microsoft considers your machine a "high availability" machine and disables the hibernate mode. There are also some issues with USB and drivers. If you can be a little more explicit about your configuration, it would be easier to suggest things to try. One known problem was with some versions of McAfee Viruscan and Norton utilities with incompatible drivers. These are documented in the microsoft knowledge base. I hope this helps.
