When running 'poweroff' my system does not power off. The last line

but none of them makes the system power down. For the first two of
these, the last line printed on the screen was "System halted". I think
that was the case for the last two as well.
It is interesting that the system managed to power off one time using no
grub/menu.lst kernel options, after having tried one of the acpi/apm
options above on a previous boot, and then pressed the reset button.
Power off was working on this machine a a couple of years ago, also
running Debian (maybe Sid), with an earlier 2.6 kernel.
My motherboard is an ASUS A7S333, with the newest BIOS version
(rev1006), and AMD Athlon XP2200+. The software is Debian Etch from
today. Thus I have kernel version 2.6.18-3-k7. Both 'acpid' and 'apmd'
I don't if this link is any use, but I found it the other day while trying to
fix another problem. I am not having this shutdown problem on Etch, but on an
FC5 install, and only with some kernels.
It might be worth a look.
Thanks Nigel and 'macondo', your suggestion worked! I now have the
in /boot/grub/menu.lst, and
in /etc/modules. It works great. Thanks again :-)
Happy holidays from Norway,
