On a Compaq EXD Deskpro with a Intel 815 mainboard, poweroff fails. It says

Did check it (and upgraded it to the latest version). Did also try this with
beta2, still the same.

Did some further testing - this bug does occur in 7.0, too. However, after
upgrading to
2.2.19-pre1 (needed the pre1 because of some AGP related stuff) this worked.
really note it right then.

This is believed to befixed by having READ_MODE_POWEROFF disabled in the 
config of the next Rawhide kernel we build (version 2.4.1-0.1.6 or later).
If these kernels does not fix the problem for you, please reopen this
