Description Michael Wardle 2003-03-09 05:16:44 UTC
Description of problem:
When I attempt to shut down the system using "shutdown -h now" or
the "Shut Down" menu option in GDM, the system reboots rather than
powering down.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
SysVinit-2.84-13

How reproducible:
Always

Additional info:
This only began happening recently, after installing Red Hat
Linux 8.0.94 (Phoebe 3), however at a similar time I also flashed
my system's BIOS to the latest version.

My mainboard is made by MSI, uses a AMI BIOS, and uses a KT266
chipset.

The Shut Down option in Windows XP causes the system to correctly
power down as expected.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-03-10 21:36:03 UTC
This is an interaction between the kernel's reboot code and your BIOS, and is
very likely caused by your recent BIOS change.

Comment 2 Michael Wardle 2003-03-23 05:58:38 UTC
Flashing the BIOS had changed the "Power Management/APM" menu item to "Off".
After reenabling this option, shutdown -h powers off the machine as it once did.

I wouldn't expect to be able to power off the system without this enabled,
despite what Windows seemed to do.
