I don't want to be a trouble maker, but I don't believe this should be
closed, because it isn't realy a duplicate of 132761.  They may be
related but not duplicates.  

In FC2 with kernel 2.6.8-1.521 I had no problem with poweroff working
as expected every time.  When I tried upgrading to the FC2
2.6.9-1.3_FC2 kernel or the 2.6.9-1.6_FC2 kernel the poweroff started
failing.  So there is a specific difference between the 2.6.8 kernels
and the 2.6.9 kernels that broke poweroff on some systems.

I currently see this issue on My Sharp MM20 laptop with the Transmetta
Efficeon processor.
