I see. I only hopped into this thread after the post in which you asked
about the KDE power control settings and the error messages about the
incomplete ACPI installation. From that I got the impression that you
wanted to activate these laptop-specific ACPI features in KDE. I think
it is normal that the "battery" and "ac" modules have no effect on a
desktop machine.

I now realize that your original question was about the shutdown/power
off function. That seems to work again since you switched from APM to
ACPI, so we are done, right?
