Description of problem:
Since resume does not work properly and I couldn't figure out how to avoid
it other than disabling apm in the kernel, I added the option apm=off to
grub.conf.  Now the machine, a Compaq Presario 5670, does not go into sleep
any more.  However, now /sbin/poweroff (via command line entry in terminal
window or logout screens) does not turn off power anymore.  The shutdown
procedure proceeds till "system halted" but then the machine stays in that
mode.  Before adding the kernel option it did power off as one would
expect.  Removing the option makes the computer power off properly again
(but then I'm back to the resume problem).

When installing 7.2 I did a clean install (less user files) and upgraded
disk partitions to EXT3.  I do have two dos partitions.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.add kernel option apm=off to grub.conf
3.power off

Actual Results:  After displaying system halted (approximately) power is
not turned off

Expected Results:  power should be turned off

APM handles both so its not a bug
