I had the same problem on a recent (2 day old testing install 2.4.27-2-686
kernel) and found that I had to manually add "apm" to my /etc/modules file
and edit /etc/default/halt to my preference. Then everything worked as
expected. I didn't have to add any kernel parameters to grub.
Hope this helps,
I checked my messages log and didn't have any of the errors you have reported
so maybe its a different problem.
