So why does shutdown branch through ...POWER_OFF rather than ...HALT?
At least under a Debian 2.1 (slink)/Linux 2.2.12 combination.
if you compile support for APM and activate the power down on
shutdown then if your hardware supports software power off control
then your machine will power down after linux shuts down, just like
it would do if you ran win*.
if you don't have that APM option turned on it won't work though, I
think debian leaves those off by default since some BIOSes are broken
and cause crashes with linux APM code.
