Compaq Presario Poweroff - Computer Doesn't Shut Down
My Linux box does not turn off when I run poweroff. It is a Compaq Presario 6000. The logs clearly show that acpi_power_off is called at the end of the shutdown process, but the computer simply hangs showing the shell as it was after the shutdown process until I press the power button on the front of the tower manually. How can I fix this? It's very annoying to have to get up to turn it off every time...
I did notice a setting in the BIOS titled "ACPI/USB Buffers At Top Of Memory", but setting it trashed GRUB, probably by overwriting the MBR. I didn't want to set it and reinstall GRUB before I was sure it'd help though. What does this setting do?
