Please try the latest errata kernel from updates-testing.
This has a large acpi update, which may fix this problem.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-09-30 02:24:42 EDT
Mass update to all FC4 bugs:

An update has been released (2.6.13-1.1526_FC4) which rebases to a new upstream
kernel ( As there were ~3500 changes upstream between this and the
previous kernel, it's possible your bug has been fixed already.

Please retest with this update, and update this bug if necessary.

Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-11-10 14:24:55 EST
2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 has been released as an update for FC4.
Please retest with this update, as a large amount of code has been changed in
this release, which may have fixed your problem.

Thank you.

there have been a number of poweroff bugs fixed since 2.6.11*
when this was reported -- can you re-test to see if this problem
still exists in a newer kernel?
Comment 5 Dave Jones 2006-02-03 00:29:22 EST
This is a mass-update to all currently open kernel bugs.

A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.

Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.
