6.10 not shutting power off

I'm a recent convert to Ubuntu and have installed 6.10 on my (rather 
ancient, in computer years) Dell Inspiron laptop.

Whereas all previous operating systems, including SuSE 10.0, have 
shutdown and swithced off the power, U6.10 does not.

I've tried a live U6.06 and this works fine.

What's happened in 6.10 and how can I put the matter right?
