[slackware]Shutting down


Hello
When i shutdown my slackware, i still need to push the power button.But when i shutdown
my computer on mandrake, i don't have to do that.
So how can i change that so that i don't have to push the power button?
Thanx Hylke

if it worked, then uncomment the appropriate module in your /etc/rc.d/rc.modules.
good luck.
