Description Tim Clymo 2001-02-24 18:55:22 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0-0.99.23 i686)

I'd like to be able to power off the machine in a similar way to shutdown
-h in RH6.2 (which works OK).

I'm running poweroff (or halt -p), both of which seem to simply halt the
system which then sits there - the last thing it says is "Power down", but
I need to physically press the button to turn it off

I have an Asus P3B-F motherboard

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. type "poweroff" or "halt -p"

Actual Results:  System halts - last thing displayed is "Power down", need
to manually turn off power

Expected Results:  System should power off itself

Try the wolverine kernel - does that behave better?

Tried the Wolverine kernel - this seems to work just fine!
