Re: Power off
acpi is a new standard in power management that is more under the
control of the OS than the bios. if acpi is enabled, you should have
things like ac_adapter, battery, etc under /proc/acpi. or you can check
dmesg and whether you can see ACPI related messages, you should see
messages like "battery socket found, battery present" etc.
once you have acpi enabled, you need to have the likes of acpid to
control all the information that acpi modules from the kernel provide.
but thats all the cosmetic part. the basic functionality you desire
should work if your hardware is ACPI compatible and acpi is correctly
compiled into your kernel.

I think you need to enable Advanced power management. Its disabled by
default.. I think the -apm flag at boot will enable it. Or you can
recompile your kernel with support enabled.
