I have also noticed this on FC3 on my x86-64 system with kernel 2.6.11-
1.27_FC3.  It worked fine on FC3 2.6.19-1.667.  I have a Tyan S2882D (K8S Pro) 
motherboard which supports dual Opterons (currently one running).  BIOS v3.02 
and ACPI enabled.

I would suggest trying to enable ACPI in your BIOS, seeing if acpid is running 
(ps -eaf | grep acpi)

Comment 2 Jim Paradis 2005-12-05 16:54:01 EST
RHEL2.1 has limited ACPI support, and shutdown in particular may not always work
on all platforms.  This issue is outside the scope of the current support status
for RHEL2.1.  No fix is planned.
