Hi

I'm having some problems with a debian sarge system that I just installed. When I do a shutdown on the system (doesnt matter if I do init 0, shutdown -h now, or poweroff) it will always stay on once it finishes the shutdown procedure. It just flashes up a line that says Power Off. Before, when I had the same version of Debian installed on it, it would automatically power off. Is there some package that I need to install to be able to do this, or is it some kind of logoff script problem?

Thanks,
Eric

is the APIC power managment turned on in the bios ?, I had a similar problem with DEBIAN 3.0 (Woody) a while back and found that was my problem the Kernel had it on but my Bios Did not.

Just a thought, hope this helps.

I actually can't find an option in the BIOS for that... not surprising. It's an old HP Pavilion that I got from my brother in law to use as a file server. But I'm pretty sure that it would auto shut down before... and I haven't done anything in the BIOS since, other than change the boot devices priority.
