You might need to change the apm or acpi settings in the boot loader.

What changes do I have to do??? I know that my boot loader is grub.

If you give the halt or shutdown command from X, the messages are sent
to tty7 or whichever virtual terminal was active at the time of the
command.  To see these messages, you can switch to a text console
(ctrl-alt-(F1-F6)) before shutting down, or press alt-F7 after the
graphic display stops.

If I choose ctrl-alt-(F1-F6) from X I get a black screen. I know that
I can type normally (even without seeing what is being typed) because
if I type startx the X server starts normally.
