Hi Rich,

Try adding 'apm power_off=1' to the end of '/etc/modules'.  I’ve only  
tried this on one machine so far but, it does work.  You may have to  
remove the 'acpi=force' option from Grub to get it to work. 'acpi=force'  
doesn’t work on the machine I’ve tested it on so I don’t know if will  
conflict or not.
