When the shutdown process is activated from any window manager, the screen goes
blank and still blank until hardware shutdown.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Activate the shutdown process in your favorite window manager.
Actual results:
Screen goes blank and doesn't display anything.

Informations related to the shutdown process (either in text or by GUI) should
be displayed until hardware shutdown.

Additional info:
I suspect the issue is related to x.org.

See the attached x.org configuration file.

I have multiple computers with FC5 and they all do the same, I'm not sure but I
think it's a normal (wanted) behaviour, pressing a key during shutdown process
shows the services shutdown however.
