Description Bob T. 2004-07-30 12:03:07 EDT
Description of problem:  I have an ECS Desknote, which has the form
factor of a laptop but uses an external battery and/or power adapter.
Since upgrading to Fedora 2 I've had the following problem: shutting
down proceeds normally, but when I re-start the computer, only the fan
comes on and it doesn't boot up. I have to unplug the power cable,
re-plug it in and then the power-on button works normally.  Even
unplugging the power cable when the box is shutdown does the trick.
It's as if it refuses to shutdown completely (to allow a non-existent
internal battery to charge?).  I'm attributing the problem to SysVinit
only because I don't know what other component might be involved.

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

This is probably an interaction between the kernel and your BIOS.
Comment 2 Bob T. 2004-07-30 17:00:16 EDT
This seems to be a hardware or BIOS issue, unrelated to Fedora 2.  I
just booted up Knoppix, shutdown, and observed the same problem.
