User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020

Description of problem:
After calling /sbin/poweroff the machine goes to runlevel 6, 
it stops all services and disks and then halts. The last message on 
the screen is: acpi_poweroff_called.
Machine waits in this state until the power off button is pressed.

The strange thing about this is, that the problem occurred after
updating kernel package from 2.6.8-xxxx to current release (2.6.9-1.649).

My machine is ASUS M2400N laptop. (Intel Centrino 1.3Ghz)








Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.9-1.649

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1./sbin/poweroff
2.
3.

Hi,

this is a workaroung about this issue :

Modification file : grub.conf (/boot/grub)

in current line you have :
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet

after mofication : 
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 acpi=off
rhgb quiet

procedure to modify the file :
-1- in root mode
-2- cd /boot/grub
-3- edit the file grub.conf
-4- add before rhgb quiet acpi=off
-5- save the file
-6- reboot the system to take the modification

Problem solve on my laptop with AMD CPU

Best Regards

Jeremy
