what kernel are you using and what computer? if its a self compiled one,
did you enable acpi or apm and are you using one of them?
If its a stock kernel or one with apm try appending apm=power-off to
the kernel command line (either in lilo.conf or when you start the
kernel up).
It should power off properly, the fact the it doesn't means that there
is a bug somewhere.

I had a problem with my acpi implementation.
If you are using acpi try
echo -n 5 > /proc/acpi/sleep
if that doesn't work try
echo -n 4 /proc/acpi/sleep
if this works and the previous doesn't tell me as its the bug I had.
