Description of problem:
I am not sure if this is a Kernel problem or an ACPI problem. I am
running on a compaq nw8000 and the poweroff or shutdown -t now does
not completely shutdown the machine. The machine goes through its
shutdown process and then seem to almost turn itself of and on very
quickly, but does turn back on completely.
Please note that I was using Redhat Enterprize V3 ES, but that the
kernel does not appear to support ACPI. I therefore installed the FC1
kernel and acpi is now working.
Any help with trying to determine why the FC1 kernel does not
shutdown the machine completely would be helpful.
The acpid that I am running is the one that is available with FC1.
I am not sure if this is a bug or a configuration issue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Shutdown -t now/poweroff
Actual Results: Shutdown routine runs
unmount drives. etc
machine stays up with partial power.
Expected Results: Machine should turn off.
