What kernel version are you using?  Do you have "apm=on" on the kernel
command line?  ("cat /proc/cmdline" to check)

I didn't know about the "poweroff" command, but it is just a symlink
to /sbin/halt which is what I use.



the nice thing about windoze is - it does not just crash,
it displays a dialog box and lets you press 'ok' first.
