Thanks for ur reply.
But why doesn't it do a proper unmount of the filesystem(s) ? When I press the power button, I can see it switching to terminal, so I assume that it exits X. So it must be able to respond to the power button. So why aren't the kill scripts run like it would in a typical 'shutdown' command?

Check the /etc/inittab. Here you will see what happens for each option like boot,power off the 3 finger salute,etc. on your system. Read about inittab by using google.

Quit using that power button! Every time I tried, it would just power off (on my desktop, a Pentium 4) and wouldn't run any scripts. You better leave that power button alone and power it off from the konsole or something. Let me repeat what Bonski55 said, using the power button isn't a very good move at all. Leave it alone unless it has pulled a Windows or something (IE, if it has crashed leaving an incredible path of distruction behind it). I'm not trying to sound mean, but that is an important point we're making here.
