Other than eliminating this annoying problem of yours, it will disable power
management, preventing things like sleep and suspend, so your PC might use
slightly more electricity (which is pretty low anyway for an average PC, 50-75
watts average).

As long as you can still power down the system via the shutdown menu or the
power button on the system chassis, I'd recommend leaving ACPI turned off.  It's
obviously causing problems.  Exactly why I can't say.  Could be a BIOS issue
with the motherboard, a software bug in the kernel version you're using, or a
combination of both.
