Description of problem:Fedora 15 fails to shut down completely

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

How reproducible:
I click upper right hand corner and choose suspend while holding the Alt key down (Power Off). F15 seems to power down, but the small Fedora icon shows up in center of screen and never goes away. The same thing happens when doing an up date that requires a restart. I have to force it to complete the shut down by hold the power button down. This was not a problem when I first installed F15 (full install not an upgrade). Not sure when it started but with the first few months of updates there was no problem shutting down.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click my name top right hand corner
2.Hold down Alt key
3.Select (Suspend)Power Off  [or 1.Just select restart after an update]
Actual results:
Fedora icon shows up in center of screen and never goes away. PC never shuts off.

Expected results:Complete total shut down.

I have exactly the same problem since I installed Fedora 15.
Sometimes it shutdowns properly, but most of the times it stucks with the Fedora logo.

I've moved on to Fedora 16. Shut down is working okay in Fedora 16.
