Dear Carlos,
      Thanks for your reply!
       I am still confused about the NVE. Now I turn off SHAKE, and then
"force" Sander setting new random velocities every, say, 100 steps (with
the same TEMP0), in a ntt = 0 run. Then I find that the system will be on
defferent Etot level after each resetting of velocity. It looks like that
the Etot of system depends on the initial velocity in a NVE simulation. Is
that normal?
