System reboots on giving shutdown


Hello everybody
I have Fedora 3 on HP 7010 laptop. I have observed that when I give the "shutdown -h" (or "init 0", or pressing the power button) with the AC adapter plugged in, the system reboots after shutting down. The messages given out while it is going down indicate that it is going down for halt - but then it reboots. The last message given out by the system is " acpi_power_off" called. I believe it is due to something in acpi, but am not able to track it out.
When the AC adapter is not plugged in the system, the system behaves properly (It goes down and halts).

Can anyone help me out.
Any help will be appreciated.


Thanks in advance.

Prabhat Soni

Hello Mr Masand,

Thanks for responding.

I should have at least checked out that before pointing any finger towards acpi. The fact is that even after disabling the service acpid the symptoms are same - the system goes down to reboot (reminds me that whatever goes down comes up !!).

Any other idea ?

Hello Mr Masand.
Since the acpi service is in use, the apmd has not been set in motion. Nevertherless, I have removed the apmd package. The result is same.
Incidently, the battery monitoring aplet is working on acpi (Confirmed through the acpid logs, where I find messages of IPCs from apid to the aplet.


Any other idea, sir.
