[Bug 43961] Re: Power down after shutdown does not work...

I have a CentrinoDuo laptop (ICH7) from PackardBell and it won't power
off anymore since Edgy upgrade; can't tell if it happened within a
kernel upgrade; as all the others my system stop functioning with the
text "Will now halt" and simply... won't halt!

Ubuntu Edgy;
kernel 2.6.17-10-generic
fglrx driver 8.29

I tried to put that acpi=force lapic but didn't helped. I tried even to
change the halt parameters in /etc/init.d/halt. Actually I found that

halt -d -f -i $poweroff $hddown

I found (from man pages) that all the parameters mean something except
"-d". Thinking I've found the problem I rewritten the line without the
-d and... nothing changed... still have to keep the poweroff button
pressed to completely power off the laptop. I so tried to change the
$poweroff to "-p" (explicitly) but as before nothing new happened.

Power down after shutdown does not work...
