Red Hat 8.0 Won't shutdown


I am running Red Hat Linux 8.0 on a IBM R31 Thinkpad that is dual booting with Windows XP using Grub. Here's the problem, when I logoff (I have it set up to shutdown on logoff), or enter the console mode and do a poweroff the system just hangs, it won't respond to any commands, like ctrl+alt+del, and the only way I can shutdown is by pressing the power button. I find this troubling because 7.3 shutdown normally. I have already tried to reboot, and the same thing happens, is there anything I can do to stop this?

Using the original RH supplied kernel or a self-created one?

maybe there's a module missing or something? It wouldn't be a huge loss to reinstall, I may have missed laptop support or something stupid like that when I was selecting my individual package sets.... Or is there an easy way of finding out if there's something missing? Because nothing safely shuts down the system, reboot, poweroff, shutdown -h now, they all make the system hang. I have let it sit for 10 mins plus on occasion and nothing happens, my desktop stays up and two lights on my laptop flash...

My guess is that you didn't do the Laptop install... I have found that with the laptops the berst thing is to select the default laptop install and add the packages that you need then let the OS figure out the deps.
