Doing a shutdown -h or init 0 doesn't fully shut off a Gateway 9300
laptop.  Haven't recompiled the kernel yet to see if it resolves this
issue.  6.2 stock kernel worked fine.

I've had a similar problem with an Epox MVP3G5 motherboard.  When I was running
redhat 6.2 I had kernel 2.2.17 compiled from sources.  When I shutdown, the
system powered off.  I upgraded to redhat 7.0 copied this exact same kernel into
boot, ran lilo on it, etc.  But, in Redhat 7.0, when it says system halted, it
just sits there.  It never powers down.  This is the EXACT SAME kernel that
shutdown perfectly in RedHat 6.2.
Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-10-05 14:30:44 EDT
The "halt" command (and the equivalent, "shutdown -h"), only halts the kernel in
newer versions of init (this did not work correctly before due to the complexity
of the halt command signalling init to switch runlevels, and init then having to
figure out which flags halt was run with).  If you wish to have the machine
power itself off, the command to use is "poweroff".
