Description of problem:
Unless I boot with  acpi=off , then shutting down from GNOME desktop does not
turn off the power, and manually pressing the power button gets an Oops.  This
is a Dell Inspiron 4000 notebook laptop (19 months old).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fresh install Phoebe: workstation, graphic login.  Fix "no screens" problem
with firstboot because Horiz/Vert frequencies for display panel not detected.
2. Login as normal user (not root).  Shutdown from GNOME desktop.
3. Manually press Power button when "Power down." message appears but system
does not turn off power like under RHL8.0.

Actual Results:  [Manually transcribed using keyboard+editor on another system.]

flushing ide devices: hda hdc
Power down.
  ## But power is not turned off automatically; so: press Power button.

[Now the CapsLock and ScrollLock LEDs are flashing slowly and irregularly, like
Morse code; but it's too hard for me to read.
Also, the Power button does not work!  The only way to turn off the machine is
to unplug the power adapter, and remove the battery.]

Expected Results:  Power turned off automatically by shutting down from GNOME

Additional info:

Booting with "acpi=off" fixes the problem:  Then shutting down from GNOME
desktop turns off the power as the last operation.

Neither /usr/sbin/dmidecode nor /usr/sbin/acpidmp are installed, so I could not
run them as requested in RELEASE-NOTES.  "locate" could not find any "dmidecode"
nor any "acpidmp" anywhere [updatedb was run].

I would like to add that this issue is reproducable on my Dell Inspiron 2500
with the latest BIOS from Dell as well.

This looks like a duplicate of bug 80330
The oops output is just slightly different between the two. Causes are just the
same though.
