Re: 2.4.26 upgrade => no auto power off
Check your dmesg, I'll wager you'll see something like this:
"ACPI disabled because your bios is from YYYY and too old."
If so, you'll need to pass "acpi=force" to the kernel. There were a lot of
acpi changes sometime around 2.4.22 which included a blacklist of bios's.
