I do not understand why people would use Fedora or non-LTS Ubuntu as a 
server platform. They must love pain or fire-fighting. At least every 
six months they want some real big job to do. Really strange. I mean, I 
could not stand it even though 1) I had a mostly automated system in 
place for installing and configuration using pxe, kickstart and scripts 
and 2) I have zero data to preserve on the front line mail servers I 
maintained in a previous job.

What hardware are you using for your server? Have you tried turning off 
acpi or other stuff?

Small comfort eh?
