shutdown -h does not poweroff the machine. The process would stop
after the following:

Halting system

then the machine would just hang there without powering off. The
machine runs an AMD 2800+ processor with nVIDIA Crush 18G+MCP-TAGPset
chipset (eMachines T2825).  FC2 was able to power-off the machine
without a problem, but FC3 is not.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. either login as root or do an 'su' command
2. /sbin/shutdown -h now


Actual Results:  The machine would try to shutdown up to the step
described above, but would not poweroff.  

Expected Results:  Expect the machine to power off

Additional info:

FC2 had no problem shutting it down.
