Hi. Nothing will seem to poweroff my PC. I have tried various

Here's what happens. Everything happens as it should, meaning, the
local filesystems get unmounted, the swap gets deactivated, the
network interfaces get deconfigured. In short, all the normal
processes get "done". Then the screen says, Power Down, but power
is still running through the PC. My mouse is still lit up, the
cooling fan is still running, the monitor is still on, etc. If I
was to hit ctl-alt-del, it would reboot. So what I have to do is
unplug the PC which is tedious at best. I haven't the slightest
clue how to fix this one. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Maybe there is a acpi-Problem. Have you tried acpi=force or also
acpi=off as boot-options?
Did you use acpi? Is it complied in the kernel?
