Description Joshua 2006-02-23 00:39:46 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc3 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
I had this same problem in FC5 test 2 --the system will not shutdown by itself it allways requires a manual reset.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.15-1.1955_FC5smp - 1975_FC5smp 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ctrl+Alt+Del
3.shutdown -r now

Actual Results:  All services are stopped then the system hangs at "nothing left to do" or something like that. 

Expected Results:  It should not require a manual reset which requires a recovery of all mounted partitions on the next boot!

Additional info:

dual celeron 500 - intel bx chipset - has functioned with every redhat/fedora release from RH 6.0 - fc3. --- I skipped fc4.

I'm seeing a similar thing.  My box reboots OK, but when I use poweroff
(shutdown the system and switch off power) it hangs in "Power down." and I have
to press and hold the powerbutton for 3 seconds for the machine to switch off.

I reinstalled fc5t3 to a fresh partition and now the system shuts down fine.
