Hrm. I couldn't say, I fear -- I don't use ACPI on my laptop, only APM.

It is possible that the ACPI system doesn't support your hardware well
enough to power it off, or that as you say, some assembly is required.

Alternately, there is probably a way to get the system to use APM
(acpi=off on the kernel command line, I believe, is a good start) and
that may work of you...

It is impossible to describe any human action if one does not refer to the
meaning the actor sees in the stimulus as well as in the end his response is
aiming at.
