is it rebooting constantly, or just when you try to shutdown?

When you boot, do you boot directly to a graphical screen?
Try this from a command line: (you'll need to enter root pass)

Code:
$ su -c "shutdown -h now"
what are the results?

It's the same it reboots even when I want it to halt (-h). But it doesn't reboot the standard way. It's shutting all wents and power and insted of power off, there is a black screen for a moment than the wents go on and it's starting.........

well... about the power-down...
have you enabled : '/sbin/modprobe apm' in the /etc/rc.d/rc.modules.
...since i did i have a proper shut-down.

i had to be more clear.....

to quickly try it , just startup Linux,
in a cosole type:''/sbin/modprobe apm'' and hit return.
( a module called apm is loaded....)
then i guess you shoud just shutdown and see if that is the problem.

if it is.....edit your /etc/rc.d/rc.modules by adding the command somewhere
or uncomment ( remove the # ) the line where it is ( i believe it's already there...)
