Angry System Halting while shutdown

Dear All,
I'm using RH ES3.0 Kernel 2.4.21-4.ELsmp #1 SMP Fri Oct 3 17:52:56 EDT 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I've a little problem.
My problem is,
Once I send command "shutdown -r now" in CLI.
The system will be shuting down process.
It looks good.
But It'll be frozen on "System Halting" line.
I've to come at Server then put the power button for power off it.
My aim that i don't want to come at system everyday to turn it off
Because it's remote system.
Anybody ever encounter this problem??

Please kindly get me out.

This means that are not using APM or ACPI, check wich you motherboard uses then make sure it is loaded as a module or compilied into the kernel.


# modprobe apm
for starters.

I'm not sure if the model is called apm as I have mine compilied into the kernel.

Also 'shutdown -r now' will reboot the system you should use 'shutdown -h now' to halt the system.
