Description Nick McMaster 2004-02-18 15:58:57 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET 
CLR 1.1.4322)

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):

How reproducible:

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.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
