Description of problem:
Good Day . . .

I am using an updated fc3. When I "Shutdown" my computer does not
shutdown. All the typical echos appear on the escreen right down to
"acpi_power_off called" and then nothing. The computer appears to die
instead of shutting down. All the lights are on but no activity. I
must physically turn the power switch to the OFF position.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click "Shutdown"

Actual Results:  Machine does not shutdown

Expected Results:  Machine should completely power down

Additional info:

I am assuming this is a bug. This is like it used to be a few years
ago before all the power management apps so maybe someone has reverted
back. I do not know. All I know is that I cannot walk away from the
machine after clicking "Shutdown." Now I must stay and physically
power down the computer by hand.

Confirmed on an HP nx9010.

Dave J.  Reading your blog, didn't you find this problem and fix on
15th October?  We'd be delighted if you could share it with us!  It's
probably my biggest gripe with FC3 so far.

Related problem on Fujitsu Lifebook P2110,
Power down looks like it works, but when I shut the
lid, it powers back up.  FC2 didn't do this and
this is a dual boot machine, and XP does not do 
this either.

Confirmed on ASUS A7V8X-MX motherboard, Athlon 2500+ processor.

Must restart the conputer using reset button then power it down by
holding the power button.

Had no problems with this exact same setup on FC2.

This bug seems to be a related bug 132761.

cpuinfo dmesg lspci ... etc

Booting with acpi=off causes shutdown to powerdown OK.
