An update, and a step backwards.

I recently had to reinstall Kubuntu Lucid, which I did from a Shipit CD.
I now have a later kernel and an updated version of Lucid.

john at john-laptop:/usr/bin$ uname -a
Linux john-laptop 2.6.32-24-generic #41-Ubuntu SMP Thu Aug 19 01:12:52 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
john at john-laptop:/usr/bin$ sudo lsb_release -a
[sudo] password for john: 
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS
Release:        10.04
Codename:       lucid
john at john-laptop:/usr/bin$

KDE version: 4.4.2

In testing various shutdown processes, with the intent of ending with a
powered off state,  all mechanisms brought my machine to a "halt" with
the only option being to press the power switch, and alt/sysrq/REISUO
now not working.

>From KDE desktop:
right click->Leave->Logout plus ctl/alt/del

>From a konsole:
sudo shutdown -h now ("halt" as expected)
sudo shutdown -P now 

Different, but still not acceptable.
