Description edbrown 1999-12-27 21:52:05 EST
After upgrading to 6.1, I am unable to shutdown (shutdown -h now) or halt
without the machine rebooting. The messages say shutting down but no matter
how I call it or as who, my machine reboots. ???

I've never heard of this problem before, and 'shutdown -h' works as desired for
a lot of other people. It is possible that a BIOS setting controls what action
to take when the operating system asks for a power-down.
Comment 2 edbrown 2000-02-03 18:59:59 EST
I'm using a Pentium 233MMX from Gateway. The problem does seem related to powerdown versus
suspend calls and the BIOS, but I don't know what to do about it. I removed the -p (poweroff)
switch from the halt script. Now at least it doesn't reboot automatically. But I do need to press and
hold the power button to shutdown, where before, under 5.2, I simply pressed the power button
once. (Pressing and holding while running Win95 is the "reset" function) I have no problems when
shutting down in Windows - poweroff is automatic. Would appreciate any comments about
shutdown/suspend/poweroff functions and calls.
