power off on shutdown doesn't work

Linux kernel has a feature that enables a machine capable of turning
the power off on it's own to do so with "shutdown -h.." or "poweroff"
commands. I used to rely on this feature for shutting down my own and
other machines remotely. I used to compile my own kernels but recently
I switched to a pre-packaged 2.4.3 (woody package, back-ported to
potato). Automatic power off on shutdown stopped working. Is there a
reason that this useful feature is not enabled in the standard Debian
