How are you shutting down? From the menu or via shell? I have the same mobo and have no problems with F7.

Shutting down through menu. i had no problem while i had installed fedora 7 last time but the problem started when i had re- installed f7. i guess acpi is not enabled, how to enable acpi in f7.

acpi at kernel boot (edit grub/lilo and put acpi after all whats on the kernel line). Might want to google for all these kernel flags. You need to have acpi support in your kernel of course, but I think f7 has that standard...

Fedora 7 has acpi enabled by default. A quick check: chkconfig --list | grep acpi
Expected output;
Code:
acpid           0:off   1:off   2:off   3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
But as a suggestion boot with a live Linux CD or into rescue mode from the installation media and check the root partition for the hidden file .poweroff, if not present then remove the hidden .shutdown file and create the .poweroff file using the touch command. The root partition has to be mounted read/write for this.

I found both shutdown issues, and when exitting a terminal window in Gnome. As it was a relatively virgin install, and it could not find the network for upgrades (or browsing or pinging), I did the easy reinstall.

The media check claimed it was a bad disk. While it did not look scratched (it had traveled with me across the country several times) I burned a new one off the same DVD iso. The terminal window now shuts down and closes; and it finds the network for updates.

You might try a media check on your install media.

I also have shutdown problem in my Fedora 7. My kernel version 2.6.22-27 f7.

The shut down and restart process is pretty slow. I ahve to wait like 5 minutes to get to sending TERM signal.

Total process is 100 plus.

Thanks for oyur help.
