The difference is on the setting of the kernel.
I use Debian and my system get powered off after "poweroff" command; of
course, the feature came after I had recompiled the kernel.

BTW, I think it would be nicer if all the Linux distros assume that all
Intel motherboards are ATX. How many bytes would get added if you have
the APM support on the kernel?
