I have the same problem, my motherboard is epox 8k9a2+ with latest bios.
Shutdown worked fine with fc2. I also tried different acpi suspend
types from the bios but with no success.

maybe related bug: 139284
Comment 2 Ben Liblit 2004-11-15 23:11:07 EST
I'm seeing the same problem.  In my case, the last few lines of
console output are:

    Shutdown: hda
    Power down.
    acpi_power_off called

Power remains on, even though the system is now halted.  The system
used to turn off the power just fine, right through Fedora Core 2. 
This is a new regression in Fedora Core 3.

My motherboard is an ABIT KG7.  I have an Athlon CPU with AMD-760 and
VIA VT82C686 chipsets.  Kernel was booted with "acpi=on" on the
command line.

Bug #139402 may also be related.

someone on the fedora mailing list sent me this: and it worked!

in grub.conf,  add to the end of your kernel line,


suprisingly that fixed the problem.  weird.  I put it between
rhgb and quiet
