Full Version: Shutdown Problems
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support

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?

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.
